Worried here. My mother had a severe stroke and she was diagnosed with vascular dementia plus the global major stroke which caused her short term memory and ability to make decisions impossible. Yet my oldest brother decided to appoint himself POA and put all of Mum's money into his own private bank account thereby keeping mum's pension intact. I worry that if anything happens to him (he's 66 and has had bypass surgery) that the money will be lost forever. After Mum's stroke we agreed TWO of us were to be POA, not one but he has "forgotten" that and my other brother and I were not consulted about his decisions. My sister in law is greedy and ignored Mum for 40 years but in the last few months has paid her a lot of attention, that worries me. I feel we need to safeguard the money for Mum, and for all of us re inheritance as I feel it is at risk of abuse and theft. But I can't be too heavy handed to start with as maybe, just maybe my brother is doing all this for noble reasons. He took Mum in against my will (she has wandered off before and gotten lost) but lives in a gated community so she is okay there for now but she will be going into a nursing home very soon. I promised Dad to make sure Mum and the money was safe and I feel I am letting him down but my resources are limited (my brother is very wealthy, I am far from that) so I really don't know where to start to change all this. Please advise, anyone, I would be so grateful.
