1. Q&A: Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) - Thursday 27 Sept, 3-4pm

    Power of attorney (LPA) is a legal tool that gives another adult - often a carer or family member - the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of someone with dementia, if they become unable to themselves.

    Our next expert Q&A will be hosted by Flora and Helen from our Knowledge Services team. They will be answering your questions on LPA on Thursday 27 September from 3-4pm.

    You can either post questions >here< or email them to us at talkingpoint@alzheimers.org.uk and we'll answer as many as we can on the day.

    Hi my dad was diagnosed with alzehimers and vascular dementia in February after a 2 year battle and is now in a care home. The one thing that bothers him is that he doesn't have any money in his wallet, from a young age i always remember him having a wad of notes in his wallet but I've tried giving him money to put in his wallet but he loses it in the home and i don't have the money myself to keep replenishing it. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions how to keep him happy and to keep his wallet looking full. Thank you.

    Hello and welcome to TP. I hope you find the forum to be a friendly, informative and supportive place.

    I know from reading past posts that some members have used play notes for this purpose. I believe they can be obtained on-line.

    hello @Nicb83
    welcome from me too
    I wonder whether you could find some of the old £1 and £5 notes, or examples online, and photocopy them - I don't think this will be illegal at all as they are no longer legal tender
