Facing Unexpected Challenges: Frontal Lobe Dementia's Impact on Our Home

Frontal lobe dementia has brought unexpected complications into our lives. My dad, who is suffering from frontotemporal lobe dementia, has unintentionally caused us to lose our house. In an effort to support my parents, my husband and I decided to sell our home and move in with them, ensuring they could remain in their familiar surroundings.

However, what we didn't realize was that my dad had used our house, which was in his name, as collateral at the bank without our knowledge. Unfortunately, the bank took possession of our house due to this situation. The heartbreaking part is that my dad has no recollection of these events, given the nature of his dementia.

In light of these circumstances, we are now committed to helping pay the bills and clear the debt. It's a challenging journey, and I'm deeply sorry to hear about the loss of your house. It's important to note that your father's dementia was likely undiagnosed when these actions occurred.
