can i be caregiver and power of attorney and executor of the will for a grandparent?

I have been caring for my grandmother for 3 years. Not one of her children have spoken to her in years or have offered to help in any way. My grandmother made me her Power of Attorney and her Executor of her Will as I have been handling all of her household, buisness and personal affairs for the past 3 years as well. Now that she is possibly nearing the end of her life her children have suddenly decided that they want the control to disperse of her belongings and put her in a home. They have just told me it is illegal for me to have anything to do with her Power of Attorney or Will as I am her caregiver getting paid through In Home Supportive Services to care for her. This was not something that was explained to us when Grandma made me POA and Executor 3 years ago. Does anyone know if this is true?
