Family betrayal!

I am so angry at my sister and BIL right now!  They live very close (a couple blocks) to our mother who is getting along in years.  Both of our families are the same size (two young kids in both families).  My  sister is extremely manipulative and has my mom wrapped around her little finger.  She is constantly complaining to my Mom that their place is too small for her and her family which is totally not true.  My Mom has a nice home that we all grew up in and it is in a very nice neighborhood and worth a lot of money.  My sister always says she wishes she could live in that neighborhood but can't afford it.  Well, apparently, my sister worked her magic manipulation because she convinced my Mom to give her house up to my sister and her family!  What?  I was told this the other night when we all had dinner together.  Our mom is fully mobile and doing quite well for her age but my sisiter has her convinced that she needs to have somebody there 24/7 and it will be my sister and her family moving in.   Ugh!  I am so angry that my sister blind sided us like that and is just taking over and my Mom is allowing it!  My sister's plan is to build an extra room and bathroom for my Mom.  My Mom deserves to stay in her house not an added on room and have my sister's family taking over her house.  So angry about this now.  What would you do in this situation?

I would speak with my mother about it. And if she is not of sound mind, I would try to become poa.

But is it possible that your mother knows this and is just lonely and this is just a small sacrifice for her and she gets it but thinks it's worth it? I

I don't think there is anything you can do about it.

 Unless your mother is not of sound mind, there's nothing you can do. It's her house to do with what she pleases.

Is adult protective services even a thing? How many calls a day would they get from helicopter parents worried about their "babies"
