It sounds like you should contact Social Services Adult Protection. They should be able to help you. Her situation with him was abusive, so they should not allow him to take care of her. She is the person to assign Power Of Attorney, so if she signs the documents giving your mom POA that should help. You can get the documents from an attorney or even online. You may want to ask the nursing home social worker for help. Good luck,
