keep up to house and with my dad some. On the other hand my brother has unwanted people coming over in my dads house smoking and drinking. My dad doesn't need these people in his house offering him drinks or in his face with there smoke filled breath. Because my dad is a X smoker and drinker. I am the Trustee and have the Power of Attorney over my dad. So my question is should I aiiow my brother to stay there. Because these people I don't trust and they all could be robbing my dad blind. I know my brother cares for our dad but that is my dad's house and I need to fill that he's safe.

It doesn't sound like your brother living on the property is the problem. It is alloing his friends into Dad's house. Have you had a heart-to-heart about this with your brother?

One of my client's had a grandson that was like this, only didn't live on property.
I had such good communication with the son who hired me for her care, that he would simply ask me to stick close to her side while he visited her, on him in the house, as well as keep notes in her journal, regarding the visit she had, conversation, as well as behavior of the grandson while he was there.
I always pretty much have been my client's Body Guard as well as Caregiver.
After all... We who are capable of caring for our parent in times like this need to be able to discuss things like this with what ever family member is incapable or unwilling to assist you in your parent's care. If they get upset with you bringing up their behavior then take the next step in alternatives... Moving, Helping, Meeting friends elsewhere.

The fact that you are power of attorney for your father does not mean you can speak against his wishes. If he is of sound mind he can make his own decisions.

Have to spoken to your brother about your concerns? He should be respectful of the fact that your dad has given up alcohol and smoking. Does the caretaker feel your brothers friends are up to no good? Have you spoken with your dad about this and, if so, what are his feelings.
