    Hi everyone, my mum was diagnosed with mixed dementia earlier in the year and I was wondering whether anyone knows if we are obliged to notify her house insurance about this please?
    She also has a key safe and I read somewhere that I need to let them know about this. Is this correct?
    Thanks in advance x

    Welcome to the forums @Mrs M C. I'm not sure about house insurance, we never decalred is and probably should have. Best to speak to your local Police Station though. I forget the name of the one we had in out old house, we are in care housing flat now, and there is only one they recommend.

    I didn't occur to me to tell my mother's insurers she had dementia - maybe I should have (she's now in a CH so that is no longer an issue). She had a key safe for the last few months too, it was provided by the council so she got whatever they supplied.

    I thought of getting a key safe for us (for a spare key) but the reviews I've read say they are really easy to bypass so I decided against. Thank you for the link Nitram, that one looks a lot more secure, if expensive.
