Okay, what you have to do is to file for Guardianship of your mother in the local family court. Go to legalzoom.com for the petition.Guardianship is granted when the Judge is convinced that she is no longer able to take care of her life due to her condition. So medical records, medical testimony
, etc - will be useful. You'd have to serve all interested family members so they can come and agree or challenge the claim. Your brother will be served too. Once you are the guardian, you can invalidate the POA, and basically make decisions in her place. Or and also, when you file, you may ask for emergency Temporary Orders that invalidate the POA. The POA is on its face already invalid since it was signed w/o the party understanding what they signed (key element needed for contract
formation) and just needs the Court to invalidate it.
