Elderly Parents held Hostage??

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Ever get mad at a family member?  Ever had power struggles over issues pertaining to an elderly parent?  What responsiblities to family members have for good communication when a sibling has power of attorney over an elderly parent in a nursing home?  Anyone have thoughts on the best way to show how money is being spent?  How not to get caught up in bogus and hand made doctor and hospital bills?  How do you keep the cap on monies spent?  Is the power of attorney not held accountable for all money actions on a quarterly or annual basis?

For siblings that are facing issues like this, I would like to hear what you have to say.  Things are even more complicated when the sibling and parent are out of state.  How do you get control of "good communication" on all the issues at hand?
