hello @Hollp52
a warm welcome to DTP

I wonder whether Citizens Advice may be able to help you ... any contact with them is confidential

and you might have a chat with one of the helpful folk on our Support Line as they deal with a lot of financial issues

your bank may have a customer service liaison, maybe you could look on their website or call your local branch

Your Local Authority Adult Services may also have suggestions ... contact details will be on your Local Authority's website

Welcome to the forum.

I’m sorry to read that you are having difficulties. I know that you will get a lot of support and help from members here. In the meantime I wondered if this factsheet would be of help-


You might also want to contact the Dementia Connect Support Line to talk things through with someone there -

You could try and see if you could get a support worker through a charity to assist you I have two lovely ladies from Mind or they may be another charity in your area. Good luck x
