My mother wants me to give her back her expensive jewelry, but I am worried she will lose it or be robbed.
She is 85, has had a stroke and suffers from dementia. She recently lost her new eyeglasses, her hearing aids, left her purse at a restaurant, it was not there when she went back. She hides things or wraps them in napkins then throws it in the trash.
I feel bad because they are hers, but she has lost so many things that cannot be replaced. Gold piece from the 1800's set in a diamond bezel. i also worry about someone robbing her and injuring her. The pieces I have are insured and are locked in a safe. I thought about having the pieces duplicated, but the jeweler said just to duplicate them would be very expensive.
Any one else face this situation?
