Are you saying you hold the Power of Attorney for you mother? Why does the home say you cannot come near your mother?Why does the home think they can decide where your mother lives?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes power of attorney for my mom. The home refused to read it.They said they are a independent lodge and do not have to follow the privacy act and also had my mom sign a document saying she didn't want to move this morning.they have free access to do direct withdrawals from her bank account last week mom needed to go to hospital they sent her by cab and billed her bank account 400. Mom said she was unhappy there and lonely and wanted to move closer to family.so I put a 800 deposit on a new lodge today they had her sign a refusal to move.the people at new lodge spoke to mom alone and verified she wanted to move.my ex went up and messed my mom. All up And said I was dangerous to the staff today they say I cannot move or visit my mom

No they refused to read it and said they are a independent lodge and don't have to follow government laws or rules.the owner said I don't care what documents you have.we have a living will and a will of executor and trustied sa
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Trustie and fianacial decisions well alive
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
This is not making sense. They do have to follow the Power of Attorney (POA) for car and finances if these are for when your mother is incompetent and she is incompetent. Someone has to give them the authority to do things for your mother and if your mother is not competent then it is you who has that authority. I suggest you take the POA and call the police and ask the police to escort you into the home so you can remove your mother from the home and to a place of safety. As well you can retain a lawyer to send them a letter threatening a lawsuit for significant damages.
