Why does your sister not want to send her back?

Would your mom be living with you?

Does she live with your sister right now? Does your sister receive any money for caring for her?

If your mom is settled and comfortable with your sister, why would you want to further confuse her (with the dementia), by moving her?

Can you give a few more details?

As far as I know, a POA is good throughout the U.S.
