My mom has recently been diagnosed with "moderate to severe" dementia, a diagnosis she does not accept. She has taken no responsibility for her own well-being for over two years now. I manage her medicine, bills and have financial and medical POA. I have found house keeping help and people to drive her on errands, she turns all of them away. My adult drug addict brother lives with her and takes full advantage of the situation, without lifting a finger to help her clean or even take out the garbage. I need to get her somewhere safe, away from the chaos of her current living arrangements. I have spoken with lawyers, and need to pursue a contested guardianship. Does anyone know if I can legally use my mom's funds to do this? I can't afford the 6k legal fee to get this up and running. Thanks for any insight that can be provided.
