My mom has dementia. Last week, my Aunt visited from out of town. She told me she got mom three new outfits (mom just got $600 of new clothes AND mom considers more clothes to make herself more secure) which I thought were gifts.
The next day, my sister (who lives out of town, but handles mom's money) got a text from my mom, this is strange that this is the first ever text my mom has sent anyone EVER. Perfect spelling and punctuation. So both of us are suspicious of the validity of the text.
She wants my sister to pay back my aunt $200 for the outfit and bras that do not fit my mom. My sister wants to pay it and be done with it. But at the very least we both think that we should put the aunt on notice that anymore UNAUTHORIZED will not be paid back.
I feel not only my aunt should not be paid back, that if she sent the text, that's ID theft and should be reported to the authorities.
My aunt thrives on drama, the fact that she's using my mother to help that need is putting a sour taste in my gut. There is no way this ends well.
