Or is it just financial? My father is his own guardian, sister and I are poa's durable and medical with Patient advocate rights. He is refusing to go into any kind of a home, afc or nursing or assist. living. My sister and I are both wore out, and all other family members refuse to help in anyway. We are allowed 30 hrs. of help a week thru area agency on ageing , sadly this is not nearly enough care to begin giving us a break. My health is failing fast and sisters job is in jeopardy,I at one point wasted my $1000.00 to try and get guardianship, only to have family members stand against me over BS reasons and things like "land patient", no one would help get my dad to the court hearing and the woman who was the guardian ad-lidem was JOKE...she honestly believed him when he sai he could walk, he has walked in almost 2 years now....I need some real help and answers to this problem. Since he is his own guardian and has told me to get out in the past, what happens if we just leave him on his own?
