Re ME

Mental health – Court of Protection. The Court of Protection declined to appoint the applicant as her mother's deputy for property and affairs in the circumstances of the case. Instead, the second respondent daughter was appointed because, among other things, she was willing and able to act, she lived nearby and was able to visit her mother regularly. Further, she was on good terms with her siblings, other than the applicant, and with the management and staff at the care home in which her mother resided. The court also genuinely believed that she had her mother's best interests at heart.
