My grandmother is my world! I moved in in November of 2012. Grandpa passed in April 2012 and she was scammed and now I am concerned. I am 30 years old, married with 2 kids. Graduated college with a bachelors in 2012 and quit my job to control this scamming. Grandfather passes in April 2012. After that things went south. She was scammed for 25 thousand and believed she was going to get this money after she paid all these fees. Almost lost her paid off home. Theses scam people got on her banking account online and tried to take another 10 grand out of her home equity! Bank stopped it Thank the lord I moved in to stop it and it has calmed some with them calling. No more money is going out I am power of attorney. That isn't all that happened with the scam phone numbers changed multiple times, calls to government officials, overseas governments and so on (trying to sum all of that up). My mother is self absorbed and hasn't called her own mom since Christmas. Grandma is forgetting where places are, like doctor that she has been going to for years and where she takes her car for oil changes. She was at the oil change place in march and went back this week and got lost. Went to the doctors today and had to ask for directions. Her nephew we talked about in discussion and she remembered him then later on that evening she didn't remember his name and when I told her she said my brother didn't have a son named that..She quit going to church. She only went to her friend gathering when I went with her.She has been going to church her whole life and meeting with her friends once a month since I was 1. I cant convince her to go back and am not going to force her. I recently started applying for jobs again. I need to work money is tight and school loans wont wait. I am a nervous wreck that something will happen like the scamming will start again, or she will go and get lost somewhere. I have no family my mom was a only child and she could care less. I promised my grandfather I would take care of her and I will but with these small events I'm nervous. I'm 30 and taking care of my children and my 83 year old grandmother. I don't regret it but sometimes it is a lot. She gets around okay. Health issues are hypertension, blood pressure, low iron and vitamin d, moderate kidney disease stage 3. Other than that she is OK well with that being said she only lets the doctor do blood test. She refuses anything else! But Is this memory issue just aging or could it be early Alzheimer's? I hope all this makes sense I just went on a typing venting spree and I tried to sum everything up!!
