Thank you all for being very supportive. I'm thinking of placing my mother in a nursing facility, however, I'm only at the research stage and haven't asked a facility director any questions as of yet. When my mother was being discharged from a hospital last year, I was asked by the social worker if I wanted her to go to rehab for recovery. I said yes and thought it would be beneficial for her. However, when the social worker asked my mother if she wanted to go, she refused. If I am her POA and if I had insisted she go would it make any difference whether or not her request was not to go? Would the same thing happen if I placed her in a nursing home? Thank you for your knowledge and support.
