In my state APS is required by law within 72 hours for what they consider non-emergencies. Emergency would be thing like physical abuse, no food, etc which would be same day response.

My thoughts exactly. A POA is named to act as an agent to the person. Resources are to be used for the person and not for the POA. If the POA used money or property for herself, it is financial abuse and is illegal. Gladimhere and Countrymouse are right -- call APS if you think there is abuse. I hope they will investigate quickly

Gladimhere is spot on - call in the professionals. Nasty business, you need help with it.

Call Adult Protective Services in your area. They will perform an investigation. What documentation do you have that mom is incompetent?
