Good evening. Your dad is now at that difficult stage that most of us must face at some point with our parents....that stage where you must file a petition with the family court to have your father deemed incapable of taking care of his daily needs and you or your sister appointed guardian. The POA won't do because it doesn't take away his right to make bad decisions on his own....you must take away his legal right to make those bad decisions. I don't take lightly what a big step this is, but you must do it in order to protect him.
I hope this has given you information that has been helpful to you. I wish you the best of luck!
