11 years ago, my mom had a will drawn up and she named me as executor. She was starting to get a little forgetful. Fast forward to today. My mom has severe Alzheimer's and she lives in the dementia unit of a nursing home. She is on Medicaid.
When she went into the nursing home, I needed to clear out her apartment (including some items that had been willed to my sister because she never came to get them. I informed my sister, asked her to come get anything she wanted, and then waited 2 months. Sis kept putting me off, knowing I was paying mom's rent and utilities to essentially keep the apartment as a storage unit for her. Eventually, I had to let the stuff go.)
My question is, most of the assets she had listed in her will are no longer available. I am her power of attorney. Do I need to update her will?
