I do not understand how hospice has any power to remove your Dad from your home they are not Adult Protective Services- I was reported to APS by a home care nurse because I expected the husband to do some simple things for himself which he had been doing in rehab and a caseworker came into our home and oversteped her authority big time and tried to push me out of the picture and said I had to hire 24/7 care for him then a social worker called and came by but since he knew us from meeting with us other times and knew there was no abuse it did not go anywhere. Also I called our daughter who works for Social Services in another county in our state case workers and social workers have no power- their job is to help the families not to cause problems. I would talk to an elder lawyer- I almost wish they had taken him out of our home because he really is too much for me.
