How to overturn POA?

I live in Ohio and have had POA of my mom since 2011. My mom has Alzheimer's. In her moderate stage she was cohereced into calling her family MD to revoke POA to which she didn't know his number but was dialed by another to do so and when asked, she don't recall doing such a thing. Needless to say if you test her mental orientation, she can't tell you all the answers. However, her MA at the docs office states the md felt she was competent to do so yet she couldn't even tell you the year or date or city she's in. Her alzheimers is severe and my sister wanted me to put her in nursing home and snuck last yr and had mom sign a new POA yet all mom knows is her name. An atty said mom can't cancel POA due to not being competent to make such healthcare choices and I have a statement from her neurologist saying she's not legally competent to make changes to her POA since her diagnosis of Alzheimer's in 2011. My sister has put her in a nursing home and provided them her POA papers. I told nursing home it's not legal and I originally have POA and statement from specialist that diagnosed her. None of them will listen to me nor accept anything I say to them. I want my mom to come home and live with me. I am an RN. What do I need to do to overturn my sisters POA since it's illegal? Why do I have to get atty or pay out my money to file something in court when her diagnosis and mental capacity says she is not of sound mind? I would like to fix this asap and without it costing me lots of money. I live in Ohio. Please help!

It was very easy
A Guardian inlightem will be appointed he will charge a fee

Guardianship trumps a POA
Good luck

At this point, you get a lawyer, pay about $3000 down to get started and you seek Guardianship in court. You tell the Judge you want to move her back home on her own. Your sister will contest the proceeding. A court evaluator will report on mom's medical and mental status. You will also be fingerprinted and background checked (more fees) and have a complete credit check.
Judges are not new at this, your tears will not sway them, they deal only with the facts and the safest option for the Person and the Property.

Adult Protective Services. Check your County or state government website. There will be a listing for who to contact for Adult Protective Services.

What does APS mean.

Unfortunately at this point, you need to call Adult Protection in your mom's state, and report this to them, if all you say is true, then your sister's POA was done illegally. However at this point the only recourse is for APS to get involved. You could also file for guardianship but that is going to cost you.
