My brother has POA. Can my mother with dementia remove him from taking care of her finances?
My brother was given Durable POA for my mother who has failing dementia. Can my mother keep removing him off and on when ever she feels like it? She does this to be mean and constantly accuses him of stealing her dishes, money and other personal items. This is the Good son. My other brother come to find that before his death ( due to drug and alcohol abuse in Dec of 2016) $89k was discovered missing from our mother's account when my Good brother was named POA in January of 2017. She's got it all wrong. Our mother added my first brother T to her check book then found out she had money missing but did nothing about it. He was the golden child. Anyway it's so upsetting that not only has she dementia, she has NPD. Always had even growing up she was a very mean and physically abusive. Now my Mother acusses my other brother of stealing her money. He has copies and receipts of every transaction he has helped her with since he became her POA. The reason he was made her POA was because she could not keep up with her finances paying bills and stuff writing checks out of an old account that had no money in it and we were getting phone calls from companies saying that the checks had bounced. Any suggestions on what can be done? She is going to mess herself up financially and then someone's going to have to come in and fix things again. Her lawyer can't doing anything about her removing him from her bank accounts. What do we do now?
