It's pretty broad. The only limit I see is that we can't fund a non-rev trust but we can set up and fund rev trust. We are concerned with a feeble man living in a serious alcoholic household. He is trusting us to respect his wishes to live out the remainder of his life in his condo. Now that he has memory issues, frequents hospital for dehydration due to non nutrition and alcohol, roommate is alcoholic ( slurring and blackouts at night and scolds him about us) and he now has severe osteoporosis of hips and uses walker. Has fallen 5-6 times this year. He has had identity fraud with irs and sallie Mae and we have pulled together timeline.and believe they are involved. We are preparing to file police report of facts and let the investigation emerge on its own. He is very loyal to his roommate and refuses to believe any type of wrong doing. The roommate manages his cash, medicines and mail. Cash does not add up, mail from irs and sallie Mae not received. Does a rev trust protect assets from undue influence? We want to protect him but are afraid of things backfiring. My 2 sisters and I and grand kids are very much present but he does not like confrontation etc. it feels like a tug of war emotionally between them and us for his loyalty. I don't think he sees it that way. I feel like we need to wait until physically immobile or dementia (alchol, un diagnosed) worsens before we can take action but worry we will regret if fall occurs at night and does him serious harm. Even the cpa the two girls hired was a friend with a drinking problem that turned out incompetent, unethical and unprofessional. We hired a new cpa who is refilling amended returns. I feel like we're stuck at this point until something bad occurs. Is the dpoa enough at this point? Do I talk to my dad's dr or will he think we are crazy and sense a power struggle? The roommate is a driver for the local bus for the elderly here in the same town.
