Bursack: Dad with Alzheimer’s obsessed with wallet and paying bills

Dear Carol: My dad has Alzheimer’s and lives in a very good nursing home. What I’m wondering about is his habit of repeatedly taking his wallet out of his pocket and emptying out the contents. He then carefully puts everything back. He also tries to pay the nursing home staff when they help him. Telling him everything is paid for simply doesn’t work. Any insight? – Julie
