For example, my mom thought she needed to call her bank and initiate the transfer a joint savings account into my nephew's name only. (I thought this idea had been put to rest.....) Of course, the bank nicely sent her the forms which I was lucky to have seen when she opened them. From dealing with a Medicaid spend down for my dad, I know and have confirmed we can't transfer any of her assets in the event she needs to go into a nursing home and needs to eventually go on Medicaid herself. We've discussed this many times, and, of course, she just doesn't remember or understand.
And she continues to call various businesses, her doctor looking for a prescription she has already received, her insurance agent to ask for a short term homeowners policy (??), etc.
So far I have been able to head things off before they go too far down the path, but has anyone else had to deal with this? Hoo boy!
