My grandma struggles with memory issues and paranoia. She constantly loses things, asks the same questions over and over, and forgets things. The worst thing is that she swears the cleaning guy she fired a couple years ago is breaking in constantly and leaving things on her counter, cropping her photos, putting water in her vitamin bottles, leaving food in her cabinets, etc etc. Ridiculous things that no one who breaks in to someone's house would do. She has had her locks changed 3 times but he still manages to get in and she claims he breaks in at least twice a week. She also thinks he calls her around 4 in the morning but hangs up quick enough that her caller ID and phone company can't trace it.
If anyone tries to imply that her stories are unlikely or that she should go to a doctor she gets very angry. Her attitude about life has become very negative.
Does anyone have any suggestions about what to say, who to call, what actions to take? Her children have power of attorney but she won't give them the papers so apparently they can't do much. I'm very worried but if I can't find a way to convince her I don't think there is much we can do. She lives 3 hours away which makes it more difficult. Any advice is appreciated.

I haven’t been in college since 2009. For the past 4 years I have been trying to go back. Something always got in the way, financial trouble, flare ups of my mental illness, other life circumstances. In the last few months, I finally had what I needed to go back to school. I was able to pay back my school the money I owed them, I applied for financial aid to pay for my classes,...
