If you feel your grandmother

If you feel your grandmother is being financially abused, contact your state's dept of elderly services & report it. You can remain anonymous. They will step in & assess the situation. Also let the Social Security Administration know if her social security check is involved.

Consider hiring an attorney who specializes in elder law to review grandma's paperwork & work in her best interests.

RE: dementia
Has grandma been tested for a bladder infection? A bladder infection can bring on what seems to be dementia.

The Social Security Administration does not recognize POA's. They only recognize the Representative Payee they appoint. I am representative for a sister-in-law.

Be proactive on behalf of grandma. You sound like you are perfectly capable of handling the situation.
