Resident account in nursing home?

13 years ago

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.
