My dad was always helpful to me, financially. Now, he is at the beginning of alzheimer's, taken care of, and is his "regular self" often. He requested a large amount of money. In shock I agreed, as I would give him anything I could. Now I wonder, what if he, during an "alzheimer's moment" gives it to a perfect stranger or looses it, on one of his walks. ???? How does one say no to a person who has helped you financially? I'd buy him anything, he doesn't want that. I think him having access to money, makes him feel secure, as it does for most of us, though it's more so for him, than most. If I say, no, I've changed my mind - he'll be very hurt and probably furious. Any suggestions?
