I'm wondering if anyone can help with a family crisis. Briefly, my father-in-law has Alzheimer's, and his girlfriend is a nightmare. She is basically fleecing him and attempting to stress him out, alienate him from his loving family and shorten his life. They are not married, in fact SHE is, but to another man who is a millionaire and lives in Spain. Every time she comes to stay with him, she exercises mental cruelty and we've just had a call from his neighbour who has said that all weekend, all she could hear was his gf screaming at him that his family don't love him and are going to put him in a home - neither of which is true.
I could do with some advice on my husband's and sister-in-law's legal rights to slap a restraining order on her - or anything to get her out of his life. They have power of attorney, but only when he is not in a position to make his own decisions. At the moment, we're seeing a frightened, lonely, lovely old man who lives a considerable distance away being bullied and taken in by this woman who is altering his state of mind. My husband and SIL are going to see his consultant on Saturday to talk things through.
If you can help, I'd be really grateful if you could PM me through the site.
