June, do you actually have a problem with the legacy? Do you not feel it's deserved? Are you concerned that pressure has been applied? It isn't clear whether you personally would want to challenge this bequest or not.
What is he leaving her? something worth 5K or something worth 50K, 500K? People do often leave something to their caregivers.
If this was done by his attorney who has done prior work for him, they usually will go over things with him by himself to make sure there is no collusion and that he seems competent. If that is the case, then Dad can do whatever with his assets.
If you are concerned that the caregiver may have taken advantage of Dan and possibly be doing other things, I would suggest you see if Dad has added the caregiver to any of his bank accounts too. You could use the excuse that it's tax time and you go to see Dad for many visits to help him with his taxes and you go over all his financials in detail. Then if it looks like something is not right, go and see an elder law attorney. Good luck.
Oh also who is the executor?
