Help with aged care homes
||I'm Mum's legal representative but I wasn't involved in her care planning. I would like to be involved - how should I go about it?
||If you have an enduring power of attorney (medical treatment) you should talk to the Care Manager of the home regarding your concerns. You may also wish to involve any other people you believe should be involved, eg a general practitioner. If you do not have the appropriate legal powers you may not be entitled to be involved in your mum's care planning. The home has to abide by the privacy laws in their state and this may preclude them from involving you in the care planning. If you do not have the appropriate legal powers, but your mum would like your involvement in the care planning, your mum should let the Care Manager know so this can be arranged.
