Mother just qualified for Medicaid. I live out of state. My sister cares for her by being prime contact, visiting frequently, and taking her to doctor. Now since mom has spent down the paperwork and bills are less so my sister can manage the financials too. Mother has significant cognitive decline and cannot make this decision. She doesn't even know where she lives. She if that far gone. Once the government paperwork is complete and we are on "autopilot" how can I legally transfer POA to my sister? She and my mother live in Tennessee. I live in Georgia. Would guardianship be the only way we could do this?
