He lives alone in a senior complex (not assisted living) . Each day his ability to care for himself becomes more obvious. In the spring I will probably bring him to live with me. I am his only daughter and oldest child.

or .. if he's still lucid, get a Durable Power of Attorney (for health and financial), along with a Medical Directive (or DNR). Avoid the legal battle, if possible.

If his doctor agrees that he is incompetent, you can petition surrogate's court for a full Guardianship which means you protect both the person and the property. You will need an attorney who does family law.
