You can go into Probate Court to seek to establish yourself as Guardian of the Person and Guardian of the his property.

I agree with the other answer---you may want to bring a Petition to the Probate Court to be appointed as his guardian and/or conservator. You might also want to pursue a mental health commitment for him. Either way, it is a complex area, and I suggest that you retain legal counsel to help you decide how to proceed.
