I had been appointed Durable Power of Attorney
for my 93 yr old farm gal (Marion) I'd been helping nearly daily at that point for 10 months. Nearly a year later, I was removed from this position to nearly family member (Karen) who'd disowned Marion 3-5 years earlier. Marion ended up having a mild heartattack in Dec 2012, going through therapies and being put into an assisted living residence (by me as she was deemed by the county to be incapacitated - incompetent - unable to be on her own in her farmhouse). Now she was relocated about 8 weeks later into another home - more directed to helping dimensia, alzheimer people. ie locked facility. After she'd gotten settled, I had gone to visit her with a friend of mine who she knows as this friend, Debbie had helped me at Marion's several times. Marion wasn't having a good day - nasty headache, lots of company earlier in the day and had wanted to lay down. So we were helping her get comfy and Karen popped in (apparently being called by the facility notifying her we were there ....She says to me "What are you doing here - you're not suppose to be here; What did you do to Marion?" ) we tried to visit a little more with Marion and then said our goodbyes.... Karen was still there. On the way out, I'd said to Debbie - "I wouldn't be surprised if Karen would try to stop me from visiting Marion esp. with how Karen acted this time").
Well - Karen's been filling Marion's head with all sorts of badddd information - lies about me to the point where Marion now has said she no longer wants to see me (specifically by name - but she's not seen me or heard my voicesince that last visit which would refresh her mind and probably have her cry for missing me so much).
With this being nearly 2 weeks now - I'm crushed and really wanting to hug Marion again and tell her how much I love her and visit with her. I've called Karen to have her call me when she would be there with Marion and I would come then, to visit her. Also asked her why on earth she's restricted me from seeing her.... She's never called me back and it's been nearly a week.
She'd gotten a lawyer, dragged Marion out to see this guy AFTER 2 doctors signed a Incapacity Form noting Marion not to be capable of making serious, etc decisions about her health care or well-being, etc.
How can I proceed? Approximate costs? I've only worked 3 days in last 4 weeks .... I'm finally starting a full-time temporary job Monday. I'm hurting so badly as I'd see Marion anywhere from4 - 6x/week. help.
