My 89 year old father has dementia and Parkinson's. I am POA and MPOA. He is at an AL and this is the second time he refused an ambulance. Any suggestions?
The calls have been from the AL nursing office. Please don't tell me he has rights, because my dad can't tell what is his health risk...what are my rights to tell the ambulance service to take him? They told me they can't if he refuses. Do I need a doctor's note to state he cannot make medical decisions to show them!?! He does listen to me and my younger sister...but who's to say that we may not be available!!!
