If yes, one needs to check to see if our U.S. Medicare will pay for medical care in another country. https://www.medicareinteractive.org/get-answers/medicare-health-coverage-options/medicare-and-living-abroad/medicare-coverage-for-those-who-live-permanently-outside-the-united-states
For Social Security, here is a list of countries where SS can be mailed. https://www.ssa.gov/international/countrylist1.htm
As for your sister, if there are situations where Medicare and Social Security may be limited or not at all, is your sister ready to foot the bill?
That's all I've got.
Mom had to have a passport to get out of the States. Is this to be permanent or just a visit?
I don't know what you can do if you don't have legal guardianship. Sister has just as much right to Mom as u do. Mom, dementia or not, went with her willingly. Even POA does not give you rights. Government agencies do not recognize POA.
Don't know about the northern border.
