An elderly person being neglected is the same as an infant being neglected. Your sister is clearly abusing your mother. She is stealing your mother's money and your mother is powerless to stop her. You do not have to report the situation to adult protective services. You can ask to be appointed as the guardian and conservator for your mother. That requires filing a petition, usually in probate court . You should seek the assistance of an attorney to do this. If you do not want to face the sister who is abusing your mother, then call adult protective services again. Tell them the whole story including the parts you did not list here. Yes, the court will appoint someone to take over and protect your mother and take all authority, real or imagined, away from the sister. All of your mother’s resources and income will be used to protect her.
This answer may appear harsh but it offends me to know someone is being abused and nothing is done to stop the abuse.
Please do something quickly.
