They were called by my 24 year old step daughter. In 2006 my husband was terminal..I was the PoA..Hospice was contracted by me. My 24 year old step daughter came home from florida and without my knowledge invited the social worker into our home. When I arrived home the social worker was sitting at my kitchen table holding a notary stamp. When I asked her what she was doing in my home she ignored me. Proceeded to accompany my step daughter into our bedroom (where my husband was) and against my orders to leave proceeded to notorize POA -financial be given to the step daughter...when I contacted the northern Ill hospice & greif center they told me the social worker was no longer employed and all the copies were lost....Because of that I lost my home,our clinic, our finances etc. Was that Legal?

We can't tell anything from what you wrote. Your husband was their client. If he was competent and invited them in, then yes, it was legal. He could sign a POA to his daughter if he was competent. I don't know how you ended up losing everything. If it was sold or dissolved, the will still should have dictated how the assets would be distributed.

This case is still in the courts as Open. The lawyer I contracted is getting sued for breach of contract and lied about sending out subpeona's. The Judge has kept the case open all this time in the hope I can find another attorney. Most attorney's won't take it because A. too much work and Money. so i've pretty much given up. "Yet this hospice outfit is still out there working as usual".

10 years ago? And you're just getting around to mentioning it? You should have consulted a lawyer at that time.
