My Aunt has 2 daughters. One has power attorney. in the last 3 years she has done nothing for her mother, she has stated that she she will not live with her and she will not live with her. my cousin has proplems. she drinks and takes amben. she fell of the tolit one night and parmedics were called, so police probally called. 15 years ago, she lived in california, she tried to kill her self with over dose. I don't think she should have poa. her other daughter was fired from her job for drinking and smoking in a church day care.. she lives with a married man. I don't think she should have poa either. My cousin wanted to call dmv and get my aunts drivers l. taken away and I stopped her. My cousin also has a husband at home with dissabilites, she worked in a bar at night. Left him home. She went to another town and stayed over night to work and leave him. There is a lot of money involved and I just know they want her money.. My aunt has dementia and really needs help. I do not want my aunts money, but i want her to get the best care possibl. Neither one of her daughter should be poa. What can i do??

You stay out of it unless the aunt is being harmed. If she is harmed you call APS (adult protection services) in your county.

Having Power of Attorney doesn't mean that a parent would move in with the POA or vise versa. POA is used when the person is unable to make decisions for themselves.

If your Aunt is of clear mind [early dementia], she can appoint anyone to be her Power of Attorney, even the Attorney who drew up the legal document. If your Aunt is no longer able to think clearly, then there is nothing anyone can do... the current POA stands.
