My boyfriend has Parkinson's Disease with some dementia.
He was receiving some in home care. We broke up for two months and I don't know what happened during that time. He was suddenly placed in an assisted living facility. Obviously, he did not want to go but he truly could not take care of himself, dressing due to the PD was a problem and he could no longer cook for himself. He is legally blind. Since he's been placed in a/l, we need to get permission each time I want to take him out, he's not allowed to have his credit card, so I pay for anything we do and then his daughter reimburses me. Of course, she has power of attorney over his medical and financial situations. His daughter was never involved in his life for the eight years we've been together. I took him to all his doctor apps, dispensed his meds when he became unable to do it himself, was on his doctors lists so i could communicate with each of them about concerns I have and they could talk to me. Never did she go to an appt, call him to ask anything about his health to either of us, was not there AT ALL. The only time she went to see him was to pick up his bills because he no longer knew how to use a calculator. He still had control over his finances. I do not know if he has been deemed incompetent, she would not tell me what happened that he was admitted into a/l and she has removed me from being able to speak to the doctors and won't allow me to go with them to the doctors. He is extremely frustrated and angry with her lack of her respect as to what he wants. Is she overstepping her boundaries and does he have any rights under these circumstances. He has voiced his wants to her but all she says is she has power of attorney. We are both angry over the way she is handling this situation. I feel very frustrated for him because my hands are tied to help him.
