Legal Question

Asked on: 9/18/12, 9:37 am

My brother, who has had the POA (medical/financial) for our father, who has advanced Alzheimers, has emptied his estate bank accounts which were used to fund our father's care (nursing home and supplies). There is no money left to leave him in the home where he has been. He does receive some SS and pension funds monthly. Is it in my/my father's best interest to have my brother sign the POA (both medical and financial) over to me to take responsibility for the incoming SS and pension funds or leave it as my brothers responsibility? Dad will now have to move from his care home and will likely be given over to state care in Arizona with minimal monthly income. What are the advantages of either option?
