Your mom went willingly to your brother's house?

Is her dementia at the point where she cannot make a sound decision?

Has a doctor ever evaluated her as incompetent?

I'm not sure exactly what your durable and medical POA would authorize you to do in this situation?

Have you had the chance to talk with your mother on the phone? Would it be possible for you to go visit her?

If your brother files for guardianship, he must first be able to prove with the testimony of two doctors that she is not competent. You can go to court and protest his claim for guardianship and request that you become his guardian, but I would get my own lawyer to do that.
