My dad has Alzheimer’s and mail always comes later in the day when he’s sundowning. He gave to one charity, the Marines (of which he was part over 45 years ago and it’s also the period he goes back to most with his Alzheimer’s), and now every charity on earth wants a donation. The problem is, he either is or is trying to keep giving donations, sometimes multiple times to the same charity, not because he’s sought them out and wants to give them money, but because they send him thank you notes or tokens that bait him into giving like calendars he won’t use or notepads, one charity sends him a nickel.
So, please, is there any way I can contact anyone to stop sending him these snail mails? I plan on writing each charity as it comes in and explaining the situation, but these things are automatically generated. Do I contact the post office when it’s their job just to deliver the mail? How do I make these exploitive snail mails stop? It’s becoming a point of taking advantage of the elderly and infirm. He doesn’t have the money to give to all of them. My mom said she’s not writing checks for all of them, but that’s not enough. So long as the mail comes, dad’s going to want to send money.
Thanks so much!
