Mom and I have lived together for 4 years. She is in better health than ever. Her monies are managed better than ever by me. She has all the health care she needs. Her family is upset with her the way she spends her money and on whom. They tried to take away her rights to make decisions and that didn't work. I am her DPOA and they had said that I am "taking" money from her. I don't want to put her in a home and she wants to continue to live in her own home. Any advise or thoughts you could share would help. Thank you

It sounds like the good guys are winning, right? You have DPOA, attempts to take away her rights didn't work.

You live with Mom in her home. Mom's happy. You're happy. What is the problem?

A thought I have is that it would be wise to spend a little of Mother's money to consult an attorney who specializes in Elder Law. (Did you see one to draw up the POA papers?) Make sure that everything is set up in the most advantageous way possible, in the event that Mother should develop an illness that would require a care center. For example, do you have a personal care agreement, documenting that money she is paying you is not a "gift" but payment for agreed upon services? Let's hope it never matters, but it is good to be prepared.
