Stop mom’s spending before it’s too late

My husband has been estranged from his mother for two years. She and his brother live together in the family home, and the two of them have quite an expensive lifestyle (for example, they take luxury vacations all over the world). A lot of this is paid for by the reverse mortgage my mother-in-law took out on her house a few years ago. If she winds up going into debt, is there any way it could become my husband’s responsibility?
