Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney (and also an M.D.). I'll be happy to help you.
I'm so sorry about your mother. It's very, very difficult when we are put in the position of making decisions for our parents - or trying to "override" the decisions they want to make. But rest assured, a stroke does not typically lead to 'incompetence' - so if your mother was competent before, there's really no reason to believe she is not now. You can however take her to a physician who can evaluate her - in can be a PCP, but a neurologist would probably be more useful. If she is competent, she would be of course aware of the decisions she is making and presumably the ramifications of those decisions.
Please let me know if you have any questions or you need me to clarify anything.
Please also submit a rating if you're satisfied with your assistance. We only get credit for the type we take assisting you if you are satisfied AND *ALSO* submit a rating. And please don't feel like we have to stop talking after you submit a rating. I'd be more than happy to continue working with you after that as well.
