What is a free or low cost way of getting access to my mother's bank accounts to pay her bills while she is in a Skilled Nursing Facility?
My mother is in SNF w/CHF, pneumonia, etc. plus dementia. I need a free/low cost way of getting access to her bank so I can pay her bills. There is total cooperation between my sister and I on her health and financial needs. SNF calls us to make her medical decisions, so no problem yet, but we need to make her financial decisions, have access to her bank, sign over title for her trailer and car if sold, etc. The SNF says she does not have the capacity to understand and make decisions.
What can I do? Power of Attn?, note from doctor(s)?
