Don't give it to her. Period.

Give her literature on credit counseling and/or substance abuse recovery, whichever is appropriate, instead.

Thanks Pam. My mom and I are going tpo the bank and tell them she wants me as a POA and that my mom wants my signature below hers as a poa saying only she and I can get money out. My gut feeling was saying this is not right and my mom was real upset too. pami

Your gut feeling tells you something is wrong and your gut feeling is absolutely right. Sis has a problem. As for Mom, if she gives money away and then needs Medicaid to pay for a nursing home, they will penalize her for the money she gave away. That would leave Mom without a nursing home. So follow your gut and tell sis you can't because then mom won't get Medicaid when she needs it. You'll be telling the truth.
