I am POA for my 85 year old aunt who lives behind us with her 91 year old sister. My aunt is in poor health and has had several falls resulting in broken bones and needs 24/7 care. My Mom, the 91 year old is taking care of her with our help. I have made arrangements for home health care but considering how much assistance my aunt needs, I believe she needs a nursing home or assisted living facility (?). I was told by her doctor that even if my aunt tested negative for virus a NH probably would not take her.
Is this true? Can they deny admittance to a qualified person? Thank you for your response.
