My Mother is 77 and suffering from some dementia. She still lives alone and is still physically highly functional. Her dementia is starting to impact some of her regular chores such as paying bills. We are noticing that some of her bills such as cable are not getting paid. She calls us and complains that the cable is out. When we inquire, we find that she has not paid in several months. We do have power of attorney and would like to begin to take over to be sure her utilities, taxes, etc are being paid. With 3 children we cannot pay out of our own pocket. We would need to be able to pay from her accounts. Any suggestions on how we go about without insulting her (she is very self-conscience of her condition) or, not getting paranoid that we are looking to steal her money (yes...she has that type of dementia and that topic has already come up). We just want to be sure she is on stable ground financially......and also be sure she does not become victim of a scam and send 20K to a business women in Nigeria. Any suggestions on how to make this transition would be great.
