Alzheimer

  • alzheimers grandpa with child

    The law allows each individual person who is a major and over the age of 18 years of age to manage and control their own affairs and finances; but what happens when they cannot do so?

    We received this query a week ago.

    “My mother has been living with Alzheimer’s for a number of years now. She has always been very independent and insisted on managing her own affairs and finances even after my father passed away in 2008. Unfortunately, of late, she has deteriorated very badly, to the point where I am very concerned about her financial situation and her care. I know my father left her some money, and I want to make sure that this money is correctly used for her care and wellbeing. But am I allowed to take over control of her affairs?”
