My aunt lives to go to church every week and has someone that picks her up. When she gets there, they get her out and she immediately is put in a wheelchair where they push her around the whole time. The nursing home told me that she is getting weaker and they do not think that she should be going out. After a few days of thinking it over, I decided that her quality of life is more important then her quantity of life. A fall can happen anytime - even at the nursing home and I feel that the people that pick her up are able to help her. She also does not go if she is not feeling well that week. When I told the nursing home how I felt, they immediately told me that they are now using a lift to transfer so they will not allow her to go out. Are they allowed to do that? As her POA, I am trying to do everything in her best interest but I feel that they are overriding her/ my wishes. Can someone please let me know if they are able to do this? If not, what can I do?
