Is there a designation for an elder who is not competent to make financial decisions for himself? Specifically, our elder is burning through the estate's funds, most of this is due to his insisting on living in a place that is way way too expensive for his income. He is spending through the money left to him (e.g. the family savings), and at this rate will be destitute within the year. How can we intervene before he spends everything? I'm talking about moving him out of place that is too expensive, and into a place that is more affordable, when he refuses to.
