My mom lives across the street from me, but started showing signs soon after my father died 7 years ago. The donations to every scammer who calls is one thing, but a little over a month ago she let a man in her house who "persuaded" her to have sex with him. That problem was taken care of by the local police department. I am trying to do everything in my power to keep her safe and not get scammed out of her money. The local authorities ask me if I have POA and I tell them no. They just look at me like I'm the devil. I thought getting POA would be easy, but I was mistaken. I don't know the first thing about what to do. I just found out through this website there is something called Guardianship. Help!
