BTW, how is it that you're able to get so much information on this situation?

I was asked to make a pastoral visit to her by a mutual friend who knows the nephew. When I asked her why she had requested a visit, she said it was because even though she was dying, she was unable to forgive someone who had wronged her. When I asked her who it was that had hurt her, she told me all of this. Her nephew arrived there sometime shortly after, and was defensive, evasive, and made no attempt to give either of us any assurance regarding her claims. In fact, when I told him how serious the acusations were, he said that if I was not going to pray with her, he wanted me to leave. I gave her my card so she could call me later in the week, but I never heard from her. I am very concerned.

Butch, call APS and ask them to intervene ASAP. If this woman is being manipulated by her nephew, it's possible he's also depriving her of treatment and palliative care.

An elderly friend is dying of breast cancer, and her nephew has her living in an upper room of his house. She says that he has sold her house and taken all of her assets. She is unable to walk further than the bathroom or walk down the stairs. She recently attempted to make her own funeral arrangements with money she thought she had saved, but was told it is gone. She started to share this with her hospice nurse, but according to her, the nephew has dismissed her. He has since denied her use of a telephone. She is essentially a prisoner in the house, with no way to reach out for help, and all I have is his word against hers regarding her money and care. Isn't there something I can do?

What kind of POA? Who is "herself", who signed the Deed? What kind of Deed and to what?

If your mother didn't understand what she was doing, whatever she signed would like be construed to have been under "undue influence." I doubt if it's valid, any more than a forced Deed would be.

But you might have to get legal help to reverse the actions, especially the Deed.

As Babalou asks, how are you getting this information? Did you actually witness these events?

Contact Adult Protective Services. Did Mom's attorney prepare the POA? It is up to the attorney to determine whether Mom has sufficient capacity to execute the POA. Is Mom in a nursing home due to dementia? Or is it memory care? Sister cannot simply choose to move mom, even with the POA. Her doctor would have had to recommend the appropriate level of care. Moving to a facility, when one needs help, is not like renting an apartment. There is a process that must be followed.
