My 82 year old father has hallucinations seeing people in his house, is forgetful, accusations of people taking things, has parkinson symptoms, and paranoid. He has two loaded guns in the house and still drives. Sister #2 lives with him and she has MS and is forgetful, doesn't take care of the house or cook. I don't think they bathe. Sister #2's daughter lives in Rhode Island and we are in Illinois. Sister #1 found out from niece that sister #2 drove into the front window of a gas station because she forget the car was in drive. Sister #1 told my brother and I. My brother brought it up to our dad and sister #2. My dad had a fit at sister #1 about her talking about taking away his guns and told her to get out of the house. So far, I'm the only one that my dad hasn't had a fit with. I was thinking of taking his side and then slowly trying to convince him to get a power of attorney, etc. He mentioned something to sister #1 about having sister #2 take over everything. Also, when my brother tried talking to him about a power of attorney, he had a fit. Do you think that gaining his trust would work? Sister #1 and brother have given up.
Also, can we be held liable if he shoots someone or hurts/kills someone in a car accident? I don't even know where to begin.
