My mom was suffering from early dementia and signed a POA to a granddaughter. I was the caregiver for my mom who was exhibiting signs of early dementia including paranoia. She would accuse me of stealing clothes, even though she was a size 18 and I am a size 10, food, money, etc. She signed a POA and medical POA to a granddaughter and she doesn't remember doing it. The granddaughter refuses to inform me or include me in any decision making medical or financial. She transferred my mother from a hospital to a nursing home without telling me. Now that my mother is in the nursing home, I cannot get any medical updates, because the granddaughter will not put me on the list to receive any. My brothers and I feel that she is making financial and medical decisions that are detrimental to mom including putting her on a Do Not Rescusitate list, and selling her property. This is a situation that I don't wish on anyone.

I'm not in this situation, but as a legal professional for a life/annuity insurer, it's certainly something I see and we train our frontline associates to watch for - self-dealing, capacity, etc. I'm curious as to what you mean as to challenging the POA? The notary can't notarize if the principal appears to be incapacitated. Are you moving forward with a conservatorship and guardianship?
