My father was diagnosed with Alzheimers dementia a year ago. Two doctors have reported that his driving license should be revoked, he should not be living alone and should not be handling his own finances. I have a DPOA and am his only living relative. He was trying to drive without a valid license and withdrew and lost large amounts of money. I sold his car and now control his finances, and he recently moved into a very nice assisted living facility near my home. Because he acted up when he first arrived the facility will house him only in their Memory Care unit. I visit him frequently but he wants to buy another car, wants to drive and wants to control his money. He's confused and unhappy at his restrictions.
Should I tell him his doctor's orders? Should I tell him he has dementia and cannot control his own money?
