I am an only child, now 69. Mother currently lives alone, 93. She is paranoid, delusional, forgetful, angry, accusatory, with limited short term memory, and distorted long term memory. She easily forgets where she puts items, and resorts to blaming neighbors and myself of stealing anything she cannot find. She is certain she will win some sweepstakes and frequently contributes $$ in an attempt to win. My relationship has been tenuous at best for the last 40 yrs.
I am the only son and feel responsible, but I have no financial authority or co-signing ability, no POA, and no medical POA. She presents well in short duration meetings, ie attorneys. Therefore, she has redrafted her will at least three times over the last three years. She named her nephew by marriage as her POA. She readily states I am not in her will, and has threatened to take legal action against me for some unknown reason. I feel responsible for her health and welfare, but have no authority. Ideas?
