Talk with the elder protective services agency if your area, and ask for help to protect your Mom. The agency may be able to provide legal services, leading to appointment of a Guardian and Conservator to take over the duties of financial management for your Mom. Your state may have a program that pays for a Court appointed fiduciary to manage your Mom's money.

If you can afford to consult an Elder Law Attorney in your city or town, ask about procedures in your state for Court appointed surrogate to take over the work of managing for your Mom. You could try to file the Court Petition yourself, but the attention required will take away from the time you are providing to protect the person you are most concerned about.

Your family should remember that once the Courts becomes involved, these problems will no longer be private matters among you. Substantial amounts of information can become part of the public record.

Call adult protective services and share the police report with them. Having POA doesn’t mean you can kidnap someone.

Speak with an elder law attorney. IMHO there shouldn't be a relative who committed a criminal act providing care for ANYONE.

I am always leary of these situations and acusations. If you have a police record of abuse, by all means, contact Adult Protective Services and get them involved. If on the other hand, you are a sibling who is yourself trying to get control over your mother and her assets, then I suggest you think long and hard before you get government agencies involved or start dragging your sister into court. It will cost you THOUSANDS and many family relationships have been destroyed over these types of situations.
