I live in MN trying to help a friend in CA. She became very ill, lost a lot of weight & began having seizures. While ill, her daughter took her to an attorney & she signed over POA unaware of the consequences or what she was signing. My friend did need help to restore her to health but was placed by her daughter in an Alzheimer's facility for long term care patients w/aggressive behavior. She has been there 6 mo & her health is back to normal. Her husband passed 7-5-13. I was given permission to speak to her social worker & told she could return home w/some help. She does not need 24 hr care. I ckd w/social svc in her area & she qualifies for help needed but daughter has not made arrgmts & is doing nothing. Don't know if incompetency was brought to probate. Is it automatic?Her husband passed 7-5-13 & daughter transferred deed 7-12-13 into her name (so she thought). I ckd with the court today 8-13-13 and they did not process it because it would be illegal for a POA to profit. It seems to me her daughter does not have her mothers best interest at heart or she would be making arrangements for her mother to return home. She also lied about the will. Said she went to the courthouse & saw it. When I called the courthouse, it had not been filed. I have offered to have her come to my home while she makes the necessary arrangements but she is not accepting my offer. The social worker said the people in this facility have been moved from other facilities because they are so aggressive and she thinks my home would be a great transition. But bottom line, the daughter has POA. The social worker thinks if I am unable to help her my poor friend will be stuck there long term because the daughter doesn't want to deal with it.
