Mom has been to at least 6 nursing homes. She has no POA. She is extremely unhappy.
She is 93 yrs old. Wants to go back to her apartment but my brother gave up her section 8 Housing voucher she did cooperate with this people Social worker etc. because of her life Insurance. He made a deal with all this nursing Homes. She still wants to cook her own food. Her Dr. declared her incompetent but the reality is she totally deteriorated and still ok health wise but not as healthy as she use to be. She like to cook her own food that is why she is very healthy. But I think the monetary incentive that the health professional/social worker etc. gets when placing a patient in Assisted Living /Care Home etc. gets the one month of the amount the facility charges as their commission. The best interest of the patient will not be serve with this kind of practice. that is why my mother is not as healthy as she was because she does not eat her favorite food anymore.
