    My brother and I are part of our mothers medical team. She is 88 and very healthy for her age. There are times that she gets very upset about things that had happened in the past.  Minor issues only. We are seeing this happen on a semi regular basis of course more so during the holidays. She does live alone and has a nice house and a house keeper on a weekly basis. Now that we are on her “medical team” can we talk to her doctor (only) legally with out breaking the federal HIPPA laws?  We need guidance on what we can do and cannot do with HIPPA.
