Her accountant got her Power of Attorney and there has not been an accounting of her estate in 11 years. She is from Tennessee which has very unregulated " Private Trusts' She is said to have in 2005, five years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, asked to sign her well invested funds into a private trust and asks that I her only daughter not be allowed access. Not one person in her family has been allowed visitation. each time I went to court they used bigger attorneys and more money to fight me. They had moved her to Florida. It means two courts two states. What am I allowed to ask for beyond and in addition to medical records?

This answer does not form an attorney-client relationship, and is not legal advice. Only an attorney that has agreed to represent you may give you advice specific to your situation.
You cannot be prevented from visiting with your Mom, unless it is your Mom's wish or there is a restraining order.
Consult with counsel in both Tennessee and Florida as to the rights and interests and the law in both states.
You make the reference of being your mother's "temporary guardian" - in what state? The question is from Seattle but Washington state does not have a provision for a "temporary guardian" in the statute. Does your mother reside here in Washington or is she living in Florida? All these important facts determine whether the the court here or another state has jurisdiction over the issues raised.
I highly recommend you seek the counsel of an estate planning attorney in Florida, since that is where she resides now, not in Tennessee. Your fact pattern is too convoluted for me to follow clearly, thus I am confused. It sounds like her funds are being held in a trust and that she has a guardianship placed over her, which occurred when she was deemed mentally incapacitated several years ago? I recommend you seek the advice of a local licensed guardianship and estate planning lawyer, and also speak with the accountant as well.
