Elder Care - Sister Taking Advantage of Mom.
My situation is different, but I don't know whom to turn to. I have 2 older sisters. My mom has recently been put into a Nursing home. Our father died this past July, my mom truly misses him fiercely and has just resigned to just existing and not living.
Anyway, back in August, my oldest sister helped my mom with paperwork that needed to be filled out. Fast forward....I then had my mom stay with me for a month, went through the financial paperwork and noticed that on all the financial paperwork, my sister put herself as sole beneficiary. I asked my mom and showed her all of this. She said that Anita would come up to me and say sign this mom, it needs to be done. Now, being my mom is of the older generation and you should be able to trust your own daughter, she said I just signed when she told me to. My dad left my mom quite comfortable. Thank God. But since Anita put herself as sole beneficiary, she is trying to HIDE the MONEY and have my mom taken care of by the State. Very criminal if I am not mistaken.
My question is, where can I go for advice and I have no money for lawyers. Please help me out. Thank you in advance, concerned daughter
