After having moved from NY to FL, to care for my 86 year old father in 2007, primarily to "shadow" and keep him from falling. He was diagnosed with a Parkinson's like disease that caused him to "throw" his right foot in front of his left and falling almost daily. He died of natural causes at home while Mom and I comforted him.
From that day forward, my two older brothers began their crusade. Two days after Dad's passing, without my knowledge, (I am trustee and personal rep.) had visited the attorney that wrote all the documents and changed the POA docs. too include them,with the three of us "acting jointly", which created a two against one situation. Never once consulting me. Since then my POD for $50,000 disappeared, my compensation of $250 per week as well. I lived off of bank loans until I could no longer pay it back with My $488 per month SSI, lost my car, health and dental ins.,bank account, credit, social life.You name it. As I write this, I am waiting for extensive spinal surgery, with four months of physical therapy due to fracturing my back while lifting my 208 pound dad off the floor and into bed, by myself with no possible help from him. Big brothers refuse to accept or acknowledge the incident regardless of what Mom and Dads primary doctors have to say about it. We have several caregivers in and out day and night, who where hired by my brothers from their homes in CA and PA without background checks, or references. They refuse to even comment when I remind them of being ripped off by these hires, and continue to commit lible, and slander against me.
Enduring their abuse since Dad passed Oct.4th,2010, and forced to stay here without the money to enjoy any social life, recreation, or respite, I need advice. Can't consider an attorney, for lack of funds and have not stayed overnight anywhere else for over 2.5 years, I need to listen to the many people who encourage me to "stand up to those bullies!" Any advice would be very appreciated. Sad, tired,lonely and bankrupt.
