I am taking care of my father who has Major Depressive Disorder with Anxiety and OCD.
He also has type 2 diabetes which is uncontrolled and he may be insulin resistant.
My father needs some one to watch him on a daily/nightly basis. He is prone to falling due to severe nueropathy in both legs and feet.
During his last visit with his PCP, she said she would write a letter stating that my father needs a live-in caregiver.
I want to take the position of being my father's caregiver...who knows him better than me.
The problem is, my father lives in a 55 and older trailor park. He owns his two bedroom, two bathroom home, but rents the land to the land owner. After talking with the land owner (without the letter from the doctor), I explained what was going on with my father and that he needs a caregiver, live-in, and I would like to move into my father's home (just me, I'm not married or have any children), and take care of my father.
The land owner rejected my request and stated that he is afraid that other residents of the park may move out because I'm only 26 y/o.
But, the land owner does not know that other people that are not 55 are living in the park with out his knowledge.
My question is, once I have the doctors letter, can the land owner override a doctors request for my dad to have a caregiver?
Any information is welcomed. Thank you.
