My mom and uncle have Poa over my grandmother who has alheizmer and is 95 years old. They are having the issues of one being more money hungry over the other. My grandmother left her home to my sister and I and my uncle is furious about my mother putting my sister name on house and thinks because we aren't her kids we shouldn't be left with anything. My mother stays and takes care of my grandmother in her home. He has called social services and made a complaint of neglect of her health and money to get her poa revoked. My mother doesn't know what to do and is also older and need to know procedures of what she should do. Please help!

Okay, so "appointed my sister on her house" is not legal language where I live. Did mom do this after consulting with a lawyer?
A person may intend for a grandchild to get their house. But if that person needs to get Medicaid, a program for the benefit of the impoverished, then transferring that asset to a grandchild could disqualify Gma from Medicaid. You and mom need to talk to an attorney together.

My grandmother appointed my sister on her house before she was diagnosed wen my uncle found out he forced my grandmother to take her off.

Is your grandmother still alive? If she left her home to someone in her will, that doesn't take effect until she dies. Is mother putting sister's name on the deed while mother is still living? That action would require the agreement of both POAs. Obviously they don't both agree. (One of the reasons joint POA is a challenge.)

Is grandmother able to understand the concept of giving her house away? Did she want this to happen?

Giving her house away could have consequences if GM ever needs to apply for Medicaid. Why the change of ownership now?

It seems to me that Mom and Uncle should consult a lawyer specializing in Elder Law.

She may lose the POA for misappropriating an asset.
