Eldest Sibling Holds Personal Possessions Hostage

RuthAnn,

I am working on a new photo album for Mom that will be easy for her to handle. I have time to do it, now that I am settled in and no longer working 7 days/week. You could help Mom immediately by putting a limited number of family photos on her photo viewer and stopping the facebook feeds. They confuse her.

The consensus of other family members that I have spoken with is that Mom will get her original photos when she leaves your premises because you have estranged yourself from the family.

I am exercising the power of attorney that Mom gave me, and I request that you give me the contact information for Mom’s primary care Physician. Mom has asked me to be present the next time she sees a doctor, and I am willing to come.

Furthermore, I request that you provide me with a statement of Mom’s current financial assets.

Mom has repeatedly requested that I make arrangements for her to find a new home. I plan to do that in a way that provides the least possible stress, and that takes into account her medical and social needs.

I think it would be to everyone’s advantage to have a meeting with other family members (some by remote access) that is mediated by either Adult Protective Services or with a family law attorney, whose services I can obtain so that we can amicably arrange for Mom’s departure.

Thanks,

Bryce

  1. “The consensus of other family members that I have spoken with is that Mom will get her original photos when she leaves your premises because you have estranged yourself from the family.”

    This sounds like a conspiracy to prevent my mother from access to her own photo album that she created with her own hands, just because these unnamed family members do not like that I have estranged myself from them.

    Huh? So, they are punishing my Mom because they don’t like my actions? I am no expert in the law but this sounds like more than simple elder abuse. It sounds like outright theft and coercion. This simply must stop.
