Q: If a man has reached old age and developed alzheimer’s, such that he can not take care of his financial matters (paying for his rent, food, etc), who is supposed to take care of them for him? Is it his wife? children? siblings? someone else? 

Bismillaah

A: His children are responsible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
