My parents are 88yrs and 85 yrs old. Last year on my mothers birthday my sister and brother in law took my parents to a lawyer to sign DPOA, a Will and Trust. Shortly after it was confirmed my dad had dementia. My sister and brother is law keep throwing their DPOA authority around. They think that if Dad is put in a home before the 5 year wait that the documents are written to the effect that everything is protected and all assets are not turned over to a nursing home? Is there such a thing or are they confused? My parents do not have any liquid assets just real estate. Also my mother had No Idea what she was signing but now my sister is claiming she is DPOA over her too? My Mom does not want my sister to be upset but is not happy with the way my sister (mainly my brother in law controlling) is handling the finances. Bills are not being paid, they have been put in collections etc. I love my sister and thankfully she has survived septic shock twice recently but I am frustrated. If something should happen to my sister, the power is not transferred to my brother in law correct? Can my Mom call the lawyers to get an understanding of what she signed without my sister being notified? Also without the lawyer charging Mom money she does not have?
