I can't believe it has come to this. My mom is coming home next week and my absentee POA brother is still directing her to not give me any POA for her healthcare. She will not be able to walk. She is blind. I know he is not going to provide for her care well enough because he doesn't admit how frail and disabled she is. I have told him that we will not be here to take care of her if I am not given at least shared POA, as he has told doctors and nurses to not communicate with me and his blocked my number. I am so sick to my stomach constantly. My mom is no friend of mine, but he is abusive, abandoned her last year to move 60 miles away without telling me, and also left her for dead last month with two broken ribs, no food and no medicine. My husband and I have been her caregivers for years but get no respect or acknowledgment. I can't afford an attorney but I filled out a Petition to Construe Power of Attorney and Review Agent Conduct, which will petition the court to examine his behavior and, hopefully, remove him as POA. I cannot believe it has come to this. Has anyone else gone ahead with a petition like this against a power hungry sibling and a parent who totally defers to them?
