My 81-yr-old MIL lives alone and independently, and is absolutely determined to continue to do so. She has well-controlled hypertension and mild dementia (some forgetfulness, but not a danger to self or others). DH and I think that, at least for now, she can continue to safely live independently with appropriate help (PERS, pill dispenser to keep meds straight, weekly nurse visits to oversee meds, etc.) , for which we are willing to pay. Her other children want to immediately move her into assisted living.
Can they force her to move, even though she doesn't want to? As long as she is legally competent (and we do have a Dr.'s evaluation to support our judgement that she is), doesn't she have the right to decide for herself (regardless of what anyone else may think)?
