Dad died in June, he and Mom left me general POA and full authority over advance health care directive. Dad knew that I would have these issues and he tried to protect us the best he could. I am caretaker to mom who has Alzheimer's dementia, is on oxygen 24/7 . I am youngest of siblings. Mom and I both received papers in the mail stating we are being summoned to a hearing on Aug. 14 to determine guardianship of mom. Mom is happy with me at her house. Siblings are unhappy as I am to inherit the family home after mom passes. They are greedy and want house sold. All of their previous lies and rants to APS, and sheriff office has been unfounded. Sister even went so far as to post pics of my messy house (I had pneumonia and teen son had gallbladder surgery the week before.) She marched into my house... taking photos of my chaos of the moment. Not once has she or my brother ever offered help... only criticize. They turned me into APS COUNTLESS TIMES. CPS, was called the day before my dad died (hospice in my living room.) They told CPS that there was a meth lab in our HOME! And I was forced to take an immediate drug test which I passed... They said I was abusing mom's medications. She needs shoulder surgery, both hips and knees redone. Her heart cannot tolerate surgery. I take the best care if my mom that I possibly can. It's not easy... it's downright exhausting most days. I have the support of a very repidudable home health agency, APS has found no reasons for concern. And law enforcement stands behind me. And still I get this letter today. Just to upset me. My mom is happy with me and my care. She can't stop crying thinking she will lose her home and our new level of normal since losing Dad June 20. He passes at 2:30 am. Family didn't leave until 6 am. My siblings came by at 8am to take mom to breakfast. I had to wake her so she could go. They skipped breakfast and instead took her to her bank. She sat down at a desk where she couldn't hear and my sister cleaned out her savings accounts, had her credit and debit cards declared lost and unusable. They didn't bring her back home until after 9pm that same night. Friends came to offer her their condolences and she was no where to be found.
Can my siblings actually take her from her home of 60+ years and away from my care when I have done nothing but give her all of my loving care and time? Does she have any say in this at all? Will judge listen to what SHE ACTUALLY WANTS?
Thanks in advance to all who respond and give me advice. I am disabled myself and our financial situation is not good... so I appreciate any and all help full suggestions. We live in Utah.
