I have recently callad APS for neglect and abuse on my mom from my sister who is POA, or claims to be. I've also made a complaint against her with SSI for misuse of funds. I am my mom's fulltime care giver, and my sister abuses her, denies her medical attention, has spent all her ssi beefits. My mom is not competant by no means, but for some reason my sister does not want her deemed legally incompetent. I want to get secondary POA and I'm told my mom has to be deemed incompetent, so how is my sister able to? What motive does she have to keep my mom from medically being deemed incompetent? I recently called APS and they came to investigate my reports of abuse and neglect and let my sister, the accused, answer for my mom. How she was even able to be in the room was was unbelievable since my mom has told me repeatedly she fears my sister. I am my mom's full time caregiver, and I know she cannot do anything for herself. APS did not ask for proof of poa, or look into anything else when they asked my mom if she could or couldn't do things, my sister answered for her. I was not able to ask them questions cuz I'm not poa, and even had me leave the room to ask my mom, but get answers from my sister, and they deemed her competent and will not investigate further, after only a 15 min visit. Does anyone understand this?? Don't they usually look at or need proof of poa document?Please help my mom and me understand how this happened? I contacted Regional APS and was told to contact the supervisor of the agent that came and ask my concerns, and why, because the agent that was here would not answer anything. This is madness, pls help me to help my mom.
