You are right to be concerned about what will happen when your parents run out of money to care for themselves. But we will need more information to give you advise.

First, why did your parents choose this particular child to handle their finances? And does this person officially have durable Power of Attorney?

Are you a caregiver for your parents? Do you live with them? Is there any struggle to get their needs met (in terms of money)? Are you getting paid for the caregiving?

Are there other siblings?

Are your parents aware of what your brother is using their money for? Do they approve?

If you can provide more details, you'll get more specific responses.

This post really should have been included with your other post at:

Again, I raise the same questions as in that post, specifically, how are you getting the information that your brother is pilfering their assets? From your brother?

You state that you're "not allow[ed] to have any information yet you obviously have a lot of information.

You need to explain these contradictory statements.

If you're caring for your mother as your profile states, how did this happen? Where were you when your parents went to the bank with your brother?
