My dad got himself into financial trouble back in 2013. Since that time I had been his DPOA & handled all his money. Fast forward to 2016. My brother decided that it wasn't fair that I had 3 houses, mine, my dad's, & the condo I bought for my mom. That it wasn't fair that Mom, Dad & I each had a car (for which we each had paid). So he moved into dad's house while dad was visiting me 900 miles away. August 2017 dad closed the joint checking account I had been using to pay his bills & opened an individual checking account. There was $1900 in the checking account when dad took it. In December 2017 my brother wanted to do home improvement to dad's house which required Dad to give brother over $2000. Dad's only income is his $1547 SS check. At the end of Jan 2018 dad had a stroke. While dad was in the hospital the bank officer called me to say my Dad's checking account was overdrawn by $500 & his health insurance premiums were bouncing (auto-debit) and my brother & his girlfriend had dad writing them $500 checks. That same week one of dad's neighbors called to tell me about the abuse she had witnessed my brother do to my dad. I begged her to call APS if she ever witnessed anything ever again. While dad was in rehab my brother discovered the importance of a DPOA. So he had dad sign POA to him. I was just sick at heart when I learned this. I called APS myself to report the financial & emotional abuse. Dad is currently in a nursing home. My brother & I are not speaking & I have no idea what is going on. I think Medicare will pay for a certain number of days & then I guess it will be Medicaid? Dad has no assets. Brother will be pissed when NH takes dad's SS check.
