My Mother had a terrible stroke a year ago today. No one has power of attorney over her. I brought her home to my house November 30th, 2017. She gets a Social Security check each month. Today was her date of pay. When I checked her account, the money wasn't there. I called the nursing home and they took her check for this month and last month as well. She has no money and I don't know what to do. I am her care taker. I am unable to work for this reason. Can they legally take her check? Do you have any advice for me?
