My mother has closed several CD's and sold bonds without my knowledge (yes, I have POA on file with the specific institutions).
She is not willing to add me to the accounts as co-owner.
The funds were either given to "friends" in need or spent at casinos.
She does not have dementia or other mental health issues.
In three years her assets have been reduced by 50% (500k). That cash flow was on top of her annual income is 90k.
Other than guardianship (which siblings are fighting against), what options do I have?
FYI - I have moved into her home to minimize the requests from friends (which helped dramatically).
