Mother is paying the family a reasonable rate for 24 x 7 care while she is in Assisted Living at a Senior Facility. We take turns staying with her including through the night. She is going to be 100 years old this year and she wants family there 24 x 7 as she is afraid without loved ones close to her at all times. She is in danger of falling. She had a bad experience at another facility, she went from being Independent, walking 200 to 300 yards a day with her cane not using her walker or having a wheel chair, showering herself to being forced into a "Care" program against her wishes, the Dr.'s objection and my objections as her attending daughter and POA of Health care. She was injured by the facility over and over during this takeover of medical decisions. She suffered from lack of medical care in the health center after they injured he, where it was the facilities duty to provide a Dr. and they did not - leading to pnemonia from a mere cough. Further, she was forced into Personal Care , she might loose her eyesight due to the facilities sloppy and negligent skipping and mixing up her Glaucoma eyedrops, it goes on and on as well as her being injured from the facility cutting my hours back from 24 x 7 to fewer hours and finally to 4 hours a day, 5 days a week . Staff left her alone, in front of the TV after meals without taking her to the bathroom or putting her in bed when she could not balance even sitting up. She had several bad falls in her apartment even after I put up signs after her first fall not to leave her alone in her wheel chair. She was sexually harassed by a maintenance man giving her fears and nightmares, it goes on and on. It got so bad that my brother did not object at the time my son and I moved her to a better facility after my brother realized that the cost of Nurse Aides at $25.00 per hour would run over $200,000 per year per her needs on top of the fee for room and board without my being there with Mother 24 x 7 out of love and some financial assistance. Mother is now making gains in her mental state from where she was. She is walking with a walker now approximately 50 yards a day but she is still in danger of falling and that might not change for the better. I have caught her several times in a fall over the past 3 months since her move to the new facility. Myself and family remains glued to her. We have a home 5 minutes away. Do you think that we could have an attorney draft a Caregiver Agreement. We want to pay taxes on the money and have a contract instead of just being given a gift so that if she runs out of money we will not be subject to a 5 year look-back. Mother could live past 105 or 106, she is a blessing to the family and much loved. The attorney I saw in 2016 wanted $5,000 and had a standard contract for limited hours a week for family care that was not what Mother or the family wanted. Even the best of the facilities have residents falling unless there is 24 x 7 caregiving. Mother had an in-house insurance policy that was supposed to pay fr 24 x 7 private duty Nurses Aid care which the old facility refused to honor. 24 x 7 private duty Nurses Aids was what the facility agreed to when the took over the originators interest in a bankruptcy. Mother paid an additional $1,000 per month for 15 years for 24 x 7 private duty nurses aids when she needed it. We are looking in the refusal of their provide that duty of care but now the most immediate need is to get a Caregiver Contract. Mother always wanted 24 x 7 care when she reached this stage in life. We are seeing another attorney next week regarding a Caregiver Contract. I have looked up agreements online but they are too generic. We would appreciate your experience and comments here.
