My mom is approaching 80 and has had a history of mental illness. She refuses to take her medications and has had 4+ 302/303/304 episodes over the last 2 years, and more episodes over her lifetime. Each time she goes though the process of getting treated for a crazy psych episode, getting released, and then relapsing back into the care facility. Currently she lives alone but has also started having difficulty managing her personal affairs (like paying taxes, uncontrolled spending, disrupting the neighborhood). She insists she is fine and everyone else is out to get her (the schizophrenic diagnosis). So I am thinking it is time to get her moved to a facility. I have Durable Medical POA and I think the hospital this time will be willing to sign declaring her incompetence. Both her social worker at the hospital and her Department of Aging rep agree that memory care might be a solution for her. My question is whether a Memory Care facility has the authority and willingness to keep an aggressive psychotic patient. My other concern is that if and when she calms down and appears to be normal whether they can still keep her against her will. She is quite good at talking the talk while in the hospital but once released immediately goes off her meds and relapses within a few months.
