I live in Pennsylvania, my 81 year old mother lives in Mississippi with my sister. My sister works a lot and my mother is left alone a lot. Her short term memory is very poor. She is with me now in PA and I am trying to get her in to see a geriatric medicine physician so we can have a good evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan. I have a brother in Florida and a niece in Mississippi who drain my mother's finances with manipulation, deceit and wearing her down. Her income is nearly $2000 and her expenses leave her about $900 per month, yet she is always out of money 2-1/2 weeks before her next check is due. She is finally agreeable to having me be her financial power of attorney to get her bills paid, make sure her needs are met, and say no to my brother and niece. Does it matter where I get the financial POA?
