Thank you for the followup. Her niece, my cousin, who is ten years older than me was granted guardianship. No one had any POA or anything binding. The guardianship was necessary because of her Alzheimer and dementia, advanced. She knows who we all are, just lost short term memory involving dressing herself, cooking for herself, etc. She also is losing her vision.

Since I wrote last my cousin who was granted guardianship and immediately has petitioned the court for permission to sell my mother's house. My mother is not in agreement so I'm working on a way to purchase it myself. Since I live in the house it would be an easy transition. I've given up trying to fight for guardianship since it seems to be a lost cause. As long as I can take my mother out from the facility where she lives when I want I'm okay.

It was not right that you were not informed of the court date for your mother's guardianship hearing. If her doctors determined that she is incompetent to conduct her business in a business like manner and the guardian is doing their job right, I don't think there is much you can do.

Who is the guardian?

Did anyone have durable and or medical POA for your mother before all of this took place?

What was the reason for getting the guardianship?
