Dad's phone rights? My dad had dementia, he is "with it" about 50% of the time and the rest he is out. My problem is he sits next to the phone and the answers on the first ring normally GREAT!! but... he then orders anything and everything they are selling, or gives hundreds to charity, or makes appointments with people he doesn't remember doing, I can't keep up. Do I move the phone? we have an account that the house money goes to and he will cut off all access to it for no REAL reason, he thinks money is missing or he knows people are stealing... I have gone to the grocery store several times and had a basket full of groceries only to run the card and have them tell me its been reported stolen... MORTIFYING! I am seeing an elder atty to get help with the financial also... is it wrong to want some sort of allowance? I live here I take care of him full time but I'm out of money, and I could use some necessities, do I have the right to that?
