I'm reviewing your question and will post a reply shortly
If Anna was truly suffering from Alzheimer's at the time of the assignment, then it will likely be shown that the she was incompetent. Further, the revocable trust which you mentioned would surely have control over the property in which she was living. It would be inconceivable if it did not. A simple assignment of trust property by the beneficiary to a revocable trust does not operate to revoke the trust. The trust is only revocable by explicit terms which are stated in the trust. Thus, it is highly unlikely that the quite claim deed would survive a legal challenge.
Question No 2 - you ask if this will affect her personal bank account. The answer is yes.
One of the statutes they are citing is regarding the definition of a religious organization. The information you have provided indicates that Anita was given the property rather than the organization. Thus, any lawsuit would personally affect Anita if there was a judgment against her...including the possibility of seizing assets from her personal accounts
The caregiver could definitely be a witness, as she would likely provide testimony regarding the circumstances surrounding the execution of the quite claim deed, as well as Anna's mental state of mind and potential incapacity.
