Hello My mum has dementia which is gradually getting worse. She can still shop and pay for things but she occasionally forgets her pin number and struggles to pay a bill if it's one she hasn't done before (e.g. a parking fine). When should I start taking on responsibility for her finances? It's tricky because she still wants to be in control and I don't want her to feel like I'm taking over. (I'm also pretty useless with financial stuff myself). Maybe can get a finance admin person to help. Has anyone ever done this? Also- how does it work when I do eventually take on managing finances, do I give her the equivalent of pocket money every week? It all seems so strange... I'm only 30 and feels odd managing my mum in this way .. Thanks for any advice!
