“My husband also has dementia and I took away all of his credit cards the very first time he ordered something that we didn’t need. My suggestion to the commenter is to view things like credit cards, car keys, email accounts, and internet access as OPEN WINDOWS for unsavory and self-serving individuals to slip into your lives and cause financial damage to you.I also have all outer doors keyed on both sides (no inside latches), so that my husband doesn’t open the door and invite a total stranger into our home. My husband, because of the dementia, now has the mind of a small child and needs my full and diligent protection.”
