Mom has severe short term memory loss. Her lack of memory, now going into long term as well, is causing severe lack of judgment. Mom does not think anything is wrong with her, but it is apparent to anyone who speaks with her that she definitely has major memory issues. New problem has emerged. She is calling the last people on earth that she should be speaking to. Mom is going through her old phone book and called on a couple of people that she has not had anything to do with for several years. These people are now very much aware of moms memory issues and vulnerabilities. I'm not talking about a small misunderstandings years ago. I'm talking about major broken trust, loyalty and of course, money issues. There are a couple of people that mom had cut out of her life a long time ago with good reason, that truly do not like my mother, or have anything kind to say about her. These people would not think twice about taking advantage of her now if given half a chance. Her long term memory is also becoming impaired. She does not remember major events, or people from years ago. All legal documents are in place for mom, but I don't want to do that before her time. I can't watch her 24/7 and I can't keep her from calling and talking to the wrong people. I'm at a loss of what to do. Any advise would be welcome.
