My 84 year-old father, who has always had at least a borderline personality disorder, has recently had major trouble coming up with words, gets lost easily, and has apparantly spent $17,000 on a new roof for the house he lives in (he lives alone), purchased from a door-to-door salesman.
What have others done when a parent starts to lose his faculties? He is stubborn and is not willing to let my sister handle his financial affairs. He lives in Washington State.
And yes, you are not my lawyer, etc.
