We need to know what we need to do either by Hippa or whatever to get health updates on my mom, without having to go through the POA, is there a way? My mom still has a good amount of her faculties, but is having some memory issues.
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
You could get your mom to sign such a form, naming you. According to my attorney, even if your parent already has dementia, as long as your parent understands what's going on when s/he is signing the document, then the document is valid.
If you're interested I can email you exactly what mine says. I see no reason you couldn't print it out, and have her sign it along with a witness who is a notary. It should be valid.
Is he not telling you what is going on with her medically?
