He has taken money out of her account and had it go to him. When can he legally do that? She moved last year to an apartment after 20 years of living in a house. She is doing fine fending for herself. My brother is a school teacher so he is busy with that. I help her when I can and so does my husband. She doesn't drive that often except to the store. She is lonely and she has told me that. That is why I think that moving to a nursing home/independent living would be a good idea for her. My brother doesn't know what assisted living means which I do. Not yet thinking about moving but looking at what is available. She is interested in doing this but will have my brother help her with the financial part of it. Want to make sure that she will have enough money for it.
