Resident account in nursing home?
We recently had to put my 89 year old grandmother in the nursing home. She has alzheimers. The administrator was telling us about a resident account where she can get her hair done and get things that are needed. We were told that $50 a month will be put in her account from her Social Security. I am not too clear on this. How is it accessed? Since she has alzheimers she will not be accessing it. If a family member is visiting do they just go and ask for such and such $ to buy something she needs? How does this work. Thanks
Also I have power of attorney if that matters.
