My sister called from a nursing home where she was placed due to seemingly losing her mind. As it turns out, this was due to a medication she has been on for 12 years, lorazepam.
She wanted to go home, but her children said no, she could not and if she did, they would no longer help her.
I took her into my home to help her get the medical care she needed. Now, almost 2 months later, she is off the medication, her mind is clear, and she wants to go back to her apartment and live on her own.
Her doctor and psychiatrist both have cleared her to do so, but her children are telling her that I am responsible for anything that happens to her in the future when she is living on her own.
I am not her POA nor guardian. My question is, CAN I be held liable or responsible for her if something happens since I took her from the nursing home?
