I have been my mothers DPOA since 2013. She is currently visiting other relatives in Minnesota which I did not send her there originally. She was sent to Texas to visit her other daughter, then was flown to Minnesota and has been there since. Recently the relatives had coaxed my mother of changing address, bank accounts, insurance, etc.... My mother is competent and I had made sure that all financial facilities were notified that I had been DPOA. This started because my mother had fallen in April and was not taken to her doctors appointments thereafter. So I reported to the state of MN of neglect on August 20, which is under investigation. Meantime, she was brought into the bank by her grandson's wife to stop the account and then withdrawal over a $1000. I have approached the bank here where we live and DPOA was on file, but in the state of MN was not recognized. How can I stop the relatives? Isn't this fraud? financial exploitation from relatives? How can a patient with Alz/dementia stage 6, make financial decisions?
