My Father is very elderly, 87, with severe dementure, lives in his own home, with a Full Time carer.
Practically, I should like him to stay in his own home & he is ok with the Full Time Carer, a bit longer, maybe up to 1 year and, in order to achieve that goal, his home really needs some changes made to it, needs downstairs toilet, boiler updated, there is much more that could be done, but let's leave it like that.
I know I need to apply to the Court of Protection to get that to happen, by placing his house into my name, then I can raise a mortgage in my name to raise some funds to get these building works done, however, I need to get a qualified practitioner to testify as to my father's capacity.
Does anyone have a source where I can go to find someone to act as that Practitioner ? Indeed if someone thinks I have to go another way, would love to hear the various options ?
