HI
I am sorry but we are all working lawyers which means are weekends are filled with all the usual tasks that fill weekends.
If your father now has Dementia and has never signed a Power of Attorney appointing the person of his choice to deal with his Financial Affairs then you can apply to the court to be the person to do so

This will ensure that any financial transactions are above board.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
