My mom has a strong urge to do her own banking. In the past I would take her and it was so draining as she does not understand banking, checking, etc. Now that she is in the AL she still wants to be taken to the bank. I can bow out now because as the guardian it is not really my business or duty. But she continues to call and ask to go. My brother the conservator won't take her and I don't blame him. He takes her cash as often as she needs it, and maybe too often. We have tried giving her record keeping duties and her own statements and registers to keep her busy but she won't do them. She just wants to go to bank and talk and make changes, withdrawals, and deposits etc. Frankly it's embarrassing as none of it makes any sense. Has anyone had any success providing their loved one with a "sense of participation" in their banking?
