What can I do if my sister walked back into my father's life after 30 years, took Power of Attorney, and has now banned my siblings and I from our father’s house?
I'm new to all of this; my father is 81 and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about 3 years ago. He's been declining slowly but about a month or so ago his wife had a heart attack and he was left with my sister at home till another sister from out of town came into the picture. Seems like within the last month his memory has really gotten worse. Our out of town sister who hasn't been in the picture for at least 30 years came into town, took my dad and check him into assisted living and now has POA. I and all of my siblings have all been banned from going on my father's property and in his house. I'm in contact with an elder law attorney but until I have a copy of that POA and get to view the inside of the house, I really don't know what I can do. My father is supposed to walk me around the house to put labels on the things I don't want thrown out or that belong to me but I'm kind of confused as to why, if my father and his wife will likely live together in assisted living, why they are being forced to clean out their home? My dad is listening to this woman and I'm not too sure why? I know he's venerable but has anyone experienced this and does this seem in any way underhanded of my older step sister?
