In excess of $1,100 per month?
My dad had a caregiver that I hired prior to my returning to live out of state. I just returned after one year. I happened to see a bank statement of his from August/September. I was shocked to see that out of the 11 checks he signed that month, 8 were to the caregiver. All were for $250 and up to $480! When I asked her about them, she said she might have some receipts for the things she purchased for him at her home. She said she couldn't remember, off-hand, what he spent the money on. She told me she would bring me the receipts she did have. Today (three days later) she says she has no receipts but that my dad knows she wouldn't take his money. My dad is 83 and suffering from increasing dementia and Alzheimers, one of the reasons I am here again.
What are the laws regarding this? All of the checks are in her handwriting with his signature. All are made out to her. What can I do about this situation? My dad is going into a Veteran's home far from here. He is unable to remember anything. He just keeps saying how much she cares about him. I know it's because she has convinced him of this. It's happened before.
