4 years ago my mother fell and almost lost an eye. My daughter lived 5 minutes away and I lived 2 hours away, since then my mother fell 2 months ago and hurt her arm. We have her living with us now. We found out over $90,000 is missing from her account. So we had a Power of Attorney signed over to me again. My daughter, her grand daughter showed up with a social worker trying to put my mother in a home. The social worker said our power of attorney was no good because she is not capable of making decisions. My Mother is forgetful but still recognises everyone and is capable of telling you what she wants, even if she forgets who's president. So I told the social worker then my daughter is no good also as she had the dementia when she signed that also. I have been her executer and power of attorney for over 20 years. Please any advice?

Wow, I’m really sorry you have to go through this. But yes, you need to see an elder lawyer and explain things to him/her in detail about the POA.

Was ur POA revoked by a lawyer and a new one drawn up with daughter as POA. Mom signing? If not, you r still POA. You Can't turn it over, Mom had to reassign. If daughter abused her power then she can be sued. She will need to show that 90K was spent on ur Mom not her. You may need a lawyer to straighten this out. Guardianship can be taken out of Moms money.

My understanding is when a new power of attorney is done it revokes whatever previous one is done. I think if you have the means to do so you should take the advice of 97yroldmom. Best wishes, will be praying for you about the matter.

It sounds like you need to get an attorney and file for guardianship to protect your mother from your daughter.
