My sister was admitted to a care home (nursing and dementia) just over 2 months ago. She has settled remarkably well and relates well to both staff and other residents. She likes to have money in her purse, but any money I have given her since her admission has disappeared. I understand she may have put it away 'safely, shown it to other residents, left it in some of the communal rooms , but I cannot bring myself to refuse to give her money when she asks for it although there is nothing she needs money for as I deal with all her expenses. I wondered if anyone had come across realistic looking fake money that I could give her so that she would believe she had money in her purse, without constantly having to top up with the real thing. I'm not sure if she would realise that such money was not real but I think it would be worth a try. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
