My Dad has been irresponsible his entire life. Also he has been very secretive and would not allow anyone to know about his finances. He recently was determined to not have the capacity to manage his person or his finances.
My brother took on Dad’s guardianship of person. Elder care lawyer said since there was no money, not to get guardianship of finances.
Dad has been in a nursing home for three months, and Medicaid has been approved.
Now the bill collectors are on the hunt. He owes for payday loans, medical copays, ambulance rides, Publisher’s Clearing house.
His SSecurity check is going to the nursing home and Medicaid is paying the rest of his bill. My brother is getting Dad’s mail. Dad did not file with the IRS last year and they are sending notices. He only gets Social Security, but you still have to File.
I was his POA until my brother volunteered to get guardianship.
I am getting phone calls from people that want their money. My brother is getting calls from people that want paid.
Anyone else having this problem?
