Perhaps you can shed light on how you would conduct a financial management capacity assessment? For example, would you need to be satisfied that the patient has a rough idea of what year we are currently in 2014 and what would you suggest if the answer came back as "2004"? Again the same question asked 5 minutes later but this time answer comes back as "2005". Likewise with what month we currently are in, that is June and the patient answers "November" and a short time later "winter"? Likewise asking the patient to count cash in simple bank notes of 5's and 10's and not be able to count these up correctly at any time or guessing the total which is still incorrect? What about if she is asked what her care fees cost her each week (£900 per week) when she answers £600 per month or another time declares she doesn't know/can't remember? Believes she has access to her bank account when she has no clue where her debit card is, what her pin number is, or be able to look up the telephone number of the bank (any bank!) believing that she has an account with ****** (a particular bank) when this was closed down over a year ago? Please MLM provide me with some insight bearing in mind the patient has been medically confirmed as having patches of brain damage, suffered strokes, mild cognitive impairment and many confirmed neurological illnesses due to terminal sticky blood syndrome and lupus since 2002 at age 60, still suffers syncopal attacks (fainting/blackouts). I could go on and on.
