Is this elder abuse?
My mother in law and I have POA of her 98 year old mother. One of her granddaughters stole money from her in the past and now has taken her to a lawyer and made out a new will. Grandma (98) has alzheimers and has had it for a few years and the past year she has really gotten bad. Grandma is not of her right mind to be signing anything! But yet this lawyer let her. What would be the best way to go about letting this lawyer know that he and the granddaughter had no right to do this! Grandma has lived with me for over a year and this granddaughter never calls to see how she is or even take her anywhere. And the couple times she did they took her to a lawyer to do this. And it had upset grandma a lot and she told us one day that they were taking her and she told them she didn't want to go. The poor thing dose not have much and what she dose have is hers to have fun with till she is no longer able to. When we had to move grandma out of her apt. they cleaned her out of things she still wanted. And even when she had asked for the things back they would not give them to her. I don't want anything from this poor woman. All I wanted to do is give her a warm home to spend what time she has left. And grandma has one daughter living that she has told me over and over since she has been here that she wants her daughter to have whatever she has left when she's gone. We don't know for sure what in all they had gotten grandma to sign. But I would think that it could not hold up since she was said to be disabled a few years back. It just makes me sick that people can be like this and the woman is still here!! I can just imagine what its going to be like when she is gone. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
