How do we get access to my father's account to pay his bills if no one has power of attorney?
My father is in the hospital on a vent and can't speak. He's been diagnosed with severe dementia, so even when he's lucid, he's not considered able to pay his bills or give us the ability via POA to pay his bills. Home and school taxes are due, and none of the family can cover the costs on our own - does anyone know any way we can access the account to pay bills in his name? Is there any other solution you can suggest here?
PS: His wife passed away not long ago, and we have no POA. Temporary guardianship appointment is about 30 days away, if he lives that long. :-\
Thanks in advance.
