When should I initiate conservatorship for my mom?
I have a POA for my mom, but she recently got agressive toward me and paranoid when I asked her to see a doctor to be sure she was safe to continue driving. She recently closed the account I'd set up with all her auto-pay household bills. When she closed her account, she neglected to notify SSA, and I assume the direct deposit did not occur. She's told other family members that she's destitute, and that I have control of all her money. I don't. I don't want to inhibit anything that she has set up, but at this point, I cannot get much information on what she has or has not paid, and I cannot get my relatives to get her to see a doctor. My ultimate concern is that I would very much like her to remain in this independent care facility for as long as possible, as she doesn't have enough money to cover a long stay in assisted care. Is this enough of a reason to initiate conservatorship, and how can I do this without an attorney?
