Acting as the Appointed Deputy or Health and Welfare and Property & Financial Attorneys
As a dual qualified practitioner, you may choose to appoint Anne Reed as your Attorney for Health and Welfare decisions. The Court of Protection (COP) may wish to appoint Anne as a Health and Welfare Deputy for your loved one.
In a recent case Anne acted as an appointed professional Attorney for a client who had no family at all. The only wish she had was to return home. Sadly, her home had been left in a state of disrepair during the 3 years she had been denied the right to return home by the local CCG and Nursing Home. Not only did Anne secure her right to leave the residential setting but she organised a compete refurbishment of her property in partnership with her Financial Deputy. Our client enjoyed almost 3 more years of 1:1 care in her own home accompanied with a 24 hour live-in care package arranged and monitored by Anne before she peacefully passed away. This case required a high degree of perseverance, expertise, together with knowledge of both the legal and clinical arenas. Anne has a tenacity and unique combination of skill and expertise and adopts the approach that ‘everything is possible’. If there is anyone who can make things happen at whatever level of diversity, then Anne Reed is the person to do so.
Anne has come to realise there are many people who do not have families to share their precious memories with. Working as an Advocate and Health and Welfare or Financial Attorney has included supporting someone to remain in their own home; arranging and providing 24 hour live in care; shopping for their dream dress to wear on their 70th wedding anniversary; fulfilling a wish to have a kitten following the death of his wife; reuniting a couple back into their home after being separated into different care homes; the clearing, renovating and arranging are for a lady diagnosed with terminal cancer whose wish was to die at home (all in 8 days), achieving her wish.
