My brother who'll be out of prison in 3 weeks wants to live with our mother, but he steals from her and manipulates her. She is staying with us now, but wants to go home. What should we do?
My 73 yr old mom has Alzheimer's. Her mom died at 72 with the same. She recently had cataract surgery and is staying with me. She constantly wants to go home. My brother is getting out of prison in 3 wks and wants to live with her. I do not want him around as he steals thousands and manipulates her. I have a Power of Attorney for her. Every few minutes is Groundhog Day and I don't know what to do. If he comes to my house, it is possible that I will be in jail afterwards. I have spoken to my mom about living in a place where people can monitor her meds, (lots of them) and who comes to see her, plus her checkbook, jewelry, etc. would not be accessible to him that way. Anybody who has gone thru this have any words of wisdom as to how to handle. She agrees then disagrees that this would be a good option, but worries about her son when he gets out. By the way, I am the responsible clean up person.
