Wow! For one, we definitely need to find these terrible people who keep scamming him. But, on the dementia caregiving end, I first have questions: what phone is he using? Who is calling? Can you disable the home phone or whatever he is using to get calls? Someone clearly has him marked as a target- this doesn’t sound random. If he has a cellphone, I think you need to get it away from him, disable it, and return it to him. Suggest that it’s “broken” and “needs to be fixed” – and then never actually replace it. You can also block certain numbers with your phone carrier. If it’s a house phone, get rid of it. The police definitely need to find out who is calling. If he sent money it should be traceable.
Rachael’s program is excellent! We are now better prepared to give our residents the care and understanding they need and to support our resident families with confidence. She also helped us with our engagement activities and daily activity calendars. We are now Dementia By Day Certified!
