I have POA. Can legally make my father move in with me? He is not mentally incompetent just physically can’t take care of himself.
He has lung cancer and cant do everyday tasks. He cannot live alone anymore, but he refuses to move in with anyone. He feels I should quit my job, leave my family and my home to stay with him. We have no funds for in home help. And as of yet we have no other family stepping up to volunteer to move in with him. I live 7 hours away. I really do not want to take on the job of being his care giver, but I will do it becasue he is my father. (I did not know him until I was an adult.)I do have a POA. If he does not come stay with me or find some one to live with him the state is going to step in and make him go to a home. I have had a social worker tell him this over and over. But he REFUSES my help. If the state does come and take him to a home am I legally responsable for his actions? I know I will be for the financial part. If he refuses to leave can I be held accountable for his bad behavior?
