My father has recently been diagnosed with dementia. My brother and I both live out of state and dad is still living on his own with visiting nurses and aides coming in on a regular basis. His DPOA has been activated and I have been handling his finances for the past 9 months. Now he has it in his mind he can handle things himself. This is the latest thing he is dwelling on and he won't talk with me about anything else. When I try reminding him of the conversation he had with his attorney, that it was best for me to handle everything for him, he gets angry and says we are plotting against him and he was never a part of that conversation. On our phone call yesterday he demanded I send all his things back to him and he is expecting it to happen immediately. What adds to the issue is, dad has shut my brother out of his life and will have nothing to do with him, so I can't get the help from my brother to try talking with dad.
I am planning a trip to go see dad in the next couple of weeks and know this trip will not end up well if I don't do as he wishes.
