My sympathies for your father's declining health.

There is a legal concept called mental capacity and if a person does not have mental capacity then the marriage can be voided.

A person has mental capacity if they understand the act and its legal consequences so a person with inferior mental capacity can be deemed capable of certain legal acts.

A person such as a relative can petition the court to be appointed guardian and then challenge the marriage.

Also there is what is called "undue influence" -basically when a party uses their position of trust to unduly manipulate the person to take advantage of their financial status based on their vulnerable position.

A caretaker is often a prime suspect in such incidents.

For cases such as this it advisable to hire an attorney to see if guardianship should be filed because if it is appropriate, they can simultaneously get an emergency injunction freezing the assets so they cannot be disposed of/transferred.
