That must be the most stupid thing a carer can do stealing from a dementia sufferer and get caught. My friend, she is my daughter mother in law. Her husband had a phone call from the bank regarding fraud somebody has used atm to withdraw money and did nightly shopping. The son lives far way nearly 2 hrs by train, no money or card in her purse. Bank told him to ring the police. She keeps losing the portable phone and son put a fixed landline and she unplugs it. She has carers 4 times a day and her son visited once a week. Very little support from local authority and social services are involved. They do not know what else they can do. Anybody got any advice. Neighbours not very understanding as one day she was knocking on the windows saying she could not find her keys. The neighbour phoned her but said next time she will ring the people. So sad, such a shame I do not live nearby. I am always happy to help somebody in need.
