No, there should be no trouble. Just call the credit card companies and explain. Arrange for the payment of the cards and work around the problem in the future, perhaps by using paperless billing and online payments. This is what I do because I don't want to do monthly explanations of how most of her bills are put on the credit card each month. I'm sorry that your brother is going through these accusations. They can be very hurtful. It is the brain damage talking. I hope that it will repair some as time wears on.

He called every card and claimed that all charges were erroneous even though they were not. Can he get in trouble? He also began accusing my sister and I of stealing money which we didn't and he told one or more of the cards that I used it rather than him and told another card that he never opened it up even though he did.  He was living with me at the time and I was helping him with everything so not only do I not want him to get in trouble for falsely claiming fraud but I am afraid I will get in trouble.  I think he is angry with me because we moved him to senior housing but I am at work all day and the doctor said he should not be by himself but I also think that the stroke has affected him and he is imagining things that aren't true.  He also went to the police claiming that my sister tried to run him over with her car but she didn't and luckily the police detective dismissed the charges.

Maybe the father was claiming the charges were his sons or that the son stole the card?

Well, it is good that he recovered well enough that he can speak to people, but I guess it just depends which charge was erroneous and which charge was not or all as mentioned. I think caregivers also have to deal with the issue that less credit cards that are interest-bearing. I heard a good idea once, that sometimes it is good somehow request a credit check with one of the 3 major places just to see what the level of credit cards. Better to deal with less credit cards that can cause financial debt, especially if a second TIA or stroke occurs, and then have to deal with this a second time or continually. I think a financial adviser can help and/or determine how to simplify this type of issue. Good luck!
