89 Year Old Mother's Money Issues
by D Conrad
My mom is 89 years young, she has been keeping company with a man for 3 years. During this time, she has gone downhill, and isn't really able to make good money decisions.
His daughter is with a church organization and asks for monetary donations. It is our understanding that both her and her husband are paid a salary.
Mom has 3 other children, and they don't ask anything from her. We feel this man is encouraging Mom to help his daughter. I would like some ideas on how to deal with this situation.
We feel Mom sends this to make him happy.
As I am the Power Of Attorney I feel responsible for helping her make the right decisions, but I don't want to hurt her feelings or make her mad.
She can't keep her checkbook in order and feels she has so much money. I am scared that the money won't last to keep her comfortable the rest of her life.
