So what really needs to happen is that POA Brother and Sister need to meet, together, with the care staff. You can't change either one of them, but if she's local, you can force her to face the people paying for her denial.

Does POA need to make everyone happy? Because he can either make his sister unhappy or you unhappy. Is there some reason he would rather placate the sister than you?
