My mother has dementia/alzheimers and she has gambled away all her hard earned savings and now her monthly income every month. I have DPA and am now bill payer on her account because she was bouncing checks. I need to know what my legal next step should be...Is there a way to block her from going to the casinos? She lives in Libby and I am in Seattle so it is hard to manage her from a distance. The casinos know she is blowing through all her money but they encourage it because they make so much money off her.
I try to talk to her about her spending but she gets very hateful towards me and I know its her disease...we once used to very very close and she now hates me and feels I'm being too controlling of her when I am only trying to do what is best for her.
I know nothing about the medicare "spend down" but do know she will soon need assisted living. Her home is on both or our names. Can I do a quick claim to put it all in my name with the DPA?
