My mother has given me a durable power of attorney and advanced health directive that was effective immediately starting 10 years ago.
She was diagnosed with a dementia 3 years ago but was doing well in her home.
Lately she exhibited issues with handling finances. We already pay all her bills but she still can access her money. a week ago she closed her checking account that is used for SS checks so now she is not getting checks and refuses to open another account.
SS tells us we need a form from her doctor stating that she is no longer capable of handling her financial affairs. But she refuses to see psychologist as she remembers last time she did not do well.
We don't want to go for conservancy as we have durable POA , but we need to cut her access to her finance so that she does not become brooke
Any suggesitons ?
