My parents entered nursing home 3 years ago. My sister who lives in the same town became POA, both medical and financial. We know she has used a lot of the folk's money for her own use. When the funds were depleted she refused to file for longterm Medicaid on my parents behalf because of the 5 year lookback. There's more to the story, but it comes down to the question of just how is the POA held accountable for the use of our parents money?
