Have been trying the emotional conversation approach with mum and it seems to bee working fairly well. We're getting very frustrated with the conspiracies she keeps coming up with, ranging from moving her fags to playing with her finances. Any advice on how to sideswipe these fantasies as they can be extremely damaging. Thankfully the bank know the score and I am reluctant to take the financial LPA as it's her last bit of independence. However, compared to a week ago we're 1000% in a better place!
