Managing Bills and Personal Finances with Memory Loss
If a person with memory loss waits too long to make changes, he or she may risk being taken advantage of. It is important that your hard-earned money is available to you when you need it. If you begin to struggle with managing bills and personal finances:
Talk to a trusted loved one or friend.
Make a list of where you have assets (e.g., banks, online stocks, security boxes).
Give a copy of the list to your loved one or friend and update as needed.
Consider having your bills paid automatically. If you need help with this process, talk to loved ones or trusted friends.
