Mom lives at home with mild Cognitive impairment. Dad passed 2 years ago. Seems mom is worse, maybe dementia now. MCI diagnosis was 8 years ago. There are 4 daughters. When the Will was made, the 2 sisters who lived in same town were named executor and co executor and POA. Before dad passed, 3 daughters lived close. All 4 daughters were taking week a month to help out. After dad passed, mom decided to change POA to another sibling. For a year and a half we all took care of mom.
The oldest siblings husband had a serious heart attack, so she started caring for him, and Covid 19 prevented her the 4 hour drive to mom's, she stopped caring for mom. Another sibling caring for mom, has fibromyalgia and husband whose had 2 types of cancer decided to move out of state. She being exhausted and always in pain and no sleep and drained financially, flew back and forth for 6 months, then stopped caring for mom routinely, she was given POA because mom didn’t want to die at hospice like dad. The two daughters who have always lived close as executor and co executor want to save the money to have the larger inheritance. They do not want to hire caregivers. They did hire their son and daughter who have been layed off because of Covid 19. They are being payed by the hour and one goes in A.M. for 2 hours and one in afternoon for dinner and meds. It’s perfect. My sisters who are there do not have to go daily or sometimes just some hours on weekends.
They still want to charge the other 2 siblings 350.00 a week for each week missed monthly. One is also POA. I agree with paying sisters who handle financials and care for mom. They still want to charge the sisters who live out of town $350. My dad left enough to take care of mom. Can my sister who is also POA and executor of will charge siblings for not caring for mom and take money from them and subtract it from inheritance when mom passes? Dad and Mom in Will stipulated it will be divided 4 ways. Is this legal? It’s a mess.
