Legal Question in Elder Law in Virginia

My mother had a stroke and his not able to talk and make her own decisions. I am very close to her and i am the oldest, but my brother who is yonger than me by 2 years, and my mom's boyfriend, keep making decisons that are not right for my mother because they say they have as much right as I do to make any decision on behalf of my mother. Sine I am the oldest is there any law that will allow me to be the decison maker?
