Moving Mom to assisted living against her will.
Mom was been diagnosed with dementia and has been living with companion care for about 5 years. On the weekend she has a different caregiver from the weekdays, and she has been making each weekend caregiver we hire quit or has thrown them out. I cant find anyone to care for her on the weekends anymore, and I can't stay with her each weekend because I have active kids to raise. Although we have tried to keep her in her home, I feel that it is time to move her to an assisted living home and her weekday caregiver agrees. The problem is that I know I will not receive her agreement to move. Short of lying to her and just taking here there, I don't know how I will be able to get her to the Assisted Living home. I do have financial and medical power of attorney. If I don't tell her, it will be unfair and she will hate me for the rest of her life. If I do tell her, she will refuse to get in the car to go, and it will be this big, ugly fight and she will hate me forever. How can I accomplish this difficult task?
