    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
