A family member had married a women who passed away and he gave power of attorney to her adult children to care for him. When his mental capacities started showing signs of dimentia the adult children contacted one of his sisters who came out and say him and met the family caring for him. The sister felt like he was well cared for and didn't think he needed to be moved to another state. Apparently, the adult children caring for him seemed to be okay with continuing this. Most of the family didn't know what was going on until sometime later when one of the care givers called another sister, explaining how hard it is for him to get angry at her for this or that. The other sister simply tried to comfort her and tell her she is doing a good job. Both sisters are elderly themselves and felt there was very little they could do. When we found out about this we decided to check on our uncle and see how things are.
To make a long story short as possible, everyone liked the family that is caring for my uncle but he says to family he wants to come back home (another state) however the care givers have guardianship through the court and when we tried to see if they would consider a temporary guardianship or work with us they got upset and basically told us to get a lawyer that they would fight us and that our family was unwilling to help.
We are really surprised how upset the care giver is being because we told our uncle that he needed to tell her he wants to move up closer to his siblings and not only hear it from us. He did this and now she is upset.
Now we are trying to find a lawyer in the state he resides! Any advice?
