My father passed in 2013 and mom was left with some savings and her Social Security benefits. She was diagnosed with dementia in 2016. She lives in a mobile home that she owns in a park for people 55 and older. There were different times when her cable TV and cell phone had been shut off for not paying her bill, when she had money in her account. She also forgot to pay on her gas and electric for a few months at a time and now has a large outstanding balance with them. This is when I realized I needed to check her bank account and go through all her bills, mail, and all her paperwork. I had to take over her finances and do the best I can with what she brings in a month from Social Security. I added up all her credit cards, and other outstanding bills she owes. She is in debt for $35,000 plus. Her SS pays her rent, car payment, utilities, and some food. She has nothing left over after those bills are paid. Her savings is all gone, now she is getting shut notices, credit card collection agencies are calling and mailing her certified letter. She also was served a summon for one of her cards. What can I do? Is there any kind of assistance for seniors on low income? What hurts me the most is she doesn't remember if she's paid her bills or not. Doesn't know what day of the week it is or the date and I truely believe she has no clue how much in debt she is in. I am having power of attorney paperwork drawn up now.
