Things are turning up missing in mom's home, she is 93 and a bit hard of hearing, and mobility issues, but is fully competent of knowing what she has and is going on. She appointed POA's, and has a Conservator for her money. These of course are good, and POA is not able to do anything to help when the mom doesn't want to start the ball rolling about doing the right thing for items she knows are turning up missing when certain people come to her home. The problem is she complains to no end about the problem, but when she is told how she can handle the situation, the brick wall goes up and those trying to help become a bit of the enemy. She has tried to confront the person(s) that are doing the stealing, however, they have now blocked her from communicating with them. Has anyone been in the situation where it has become a continual conversation of problem, but the aging parent won't do what is right because of fear of what the perpetrators will retaliate with. It is abuse and our system for elder abuse here is not seeing the whole picture as she is not considered to be in harms-way. So the stealing continues. Any suggestions?
