The answer in NO. But only if someone objects and advises the court of all the facts. You or someone responsible should apply for Guardianship while there is time to do so.

Your mom cannot "get" POA for her mom. That has to be given freely by grandma, as vstefans says.

Your mom cannot get guardianship of her mother without going through the court system. From what you've said, it seems unlikely that will fly.

Keep your ears open. If Mom actually does find a lawyer who will help her attempt to gain guardianship, you can step in and have your say.

I am so sorry you are caught in such a dysfunctional situation.

This makes no sense, and this is why guardianship goes through a court proceeding and can be contested. The person is notified and if they can take the steps to contest it their point of view will be heard, as well as anyone else who would do so. She can't get POA unless Grandma beign of sound mind gives it. She is probably just blustering threats that she knows can't be followed through, but if you can "lawyer up" to be sure it would be great.
