Financial elder abuse

How does one go about getting help for a senior that is being taken advantage of by her children? One has power of attorney and is spending all her money on herself…between the 2 they are spending thousands a month and she isn’t financially well off….she only has some money from her other child’s life insurance that he left to her so she would be ok after her passed, once he did his sister deemed her incompetent and took over the finances.The account is shared with one child (bank statements show the transactions and they live in different provinces) and she is giving the other her bank card on occasion and they are using it for drugs, smokes, booze, gas, food etc. She lives in an assisted living facility. As a grandchild can I report annonomously? Is there a reporting line, call the police, talk to the facility she lives in or do I just have to sit back and watch them blow her money as there is nothing I can do?? She is only 80 and I’m decent physical health…she could live another 10-15 years, she has a small pension and could be dirt poor because of them!
