SHE is causing trouble again

I need to vent this out so here it is. My loving wonderful grandmother whom we call "Nana" is 97 years old. I have vented here in the past how her daughter, my mothers only sister (there are two of them) is using MY Grandmother as a pawn to get back at my mom for whatever she thinks she has done to her. Losing the house my grandmother owned forever was the first strike who knows what the others are. They change from day to day.
I bought my Nana a huge frame a while ago and put all of my families including brothers and sisters and their families in it. She took my brothers picture out of the frame (my brother did have a drinking problem a few years ago which caused anger issues and he lived in the house when it was foreclosed upon. He has since cleaned up his life. He does not drink and he has a two year old son whom he takes excellent care of) She told my mother she took out the picture and took it to the security desk and told them she did not want him to come to see my grandmother. This is the last straw!!!!!
I want to file for guardianship of my grandmother. She is 97 and is being used by my aunt to get back at my mom! This is so not fair to my grandmother. My grandmother is getting slightly confused now and does not realize what is going on. In the mean time this woman has tried to not allow me to see my grandmother, my cousin (her own daughter)is also not allowed to see my grandmother (only because her mother will cause a seen if she sees her there). THIS IS CRAZY. By getting guardianship of my grandmother. I would be the person in charge of her. We could get her into a nicer place. (The place where she is now is a state hospital with all kinds of crazies in there. My Nana does not need to be there. When she was down here she was in a beautiful nursing home. This place is hell compared to where she was here. Sorry that is blunt but it is true!) Anyone would be able to take my grandmother out to their homes for functions they were having. She missed my niece's graduation party because my aunt did not want her there. SO instead she sat in her nursing home when she could have been at a party where my whole family was celebrating. Guardianship would cost $379.00. The court will investigate the claims and my grandmother would not have to chose between her children who would be in charge. She could see anybody she wanted to and live the rest of her life happy!

Becky, It would be wonderful if you can get the guardianship. It sounds like the aunt has some mental problems and the shagrin of your dear grandma. I would see if the aunt could be evaluated because of her odd behavior.
