Hi, my mother is 81 yrs old and suffers from vascular dementia. Over the past 5 years at least her memory and confusion have deteriorated so much I am now considering taking control of her finances by registering the EPA she signed several years ago. I have put this off much longer than was wise as she loves to shop especially mail order and I didnot want to take this pleasure away from her. Unfortunately she has fallen prey to an un scrupulous salesperson who has befriended and manipulated her into paying £996 for a massage cushion which allegedly eases the pain of arthritis! As I live a good distance away from her ( about 1 3/4hrs travelling time) I was wondering to manage her day to day needs for money. I can make sure she has enough cash in the house but has anyone any suggestions how I can still let her make catalogue purchases?
