You do need a keeper. Or some help. There are social services for vulnerable adults and I suspect you may benefit from that sort of help. If you would accept it.

Re: Long time no see ;)

As aj said, ask about reserves, and ask where they are kept, who has control, what procedures are necessary to withdraw funds, etc.
