I am not sure what effective steps you can take to protect your mother's interests but here are some thoughts.
- It would be malpractice if the solicitor went ahead and processed a POA knowing your Mum lacked mental capacity.
- You say your mum has "never heard of POA" the solicitor should have explained in detail what a POA entailed and its implications.
- If it was my Mum I would be concerned about the cost of having a solicitor involved in administering a POA.
- As the process is already advanced I would contact the Public Guardians office express your concerns and ask if there is a process by which you can get the granting of POA reviewed. As previously sugested you may be well advised to get your own solicitor to act on your behalf.
- Your sister isn't very well informed if she thinks that she has "the power", I assume by that she thinks she can do anything she likes. Her powers are limited to making decisions in your mum's best interest and financially she will need to keep a record of expenditure. Doctors should not comply with your sisters decisions if they felt it was detrimental to your mum.
- Have you any idea why your mum and sister have cut you out of this process?
