I’m wondering if even though I’m my mom’s POA, and now that she knows her house is going to be taken by the RM bank pretty soon, can my mom demand that they release her so she can go back to her house?
According to the RM contract, she has up until 12 months of not living in her house for the loan to be called in.
My mom was admitted to rehab in Feb of this year, did the 3 months of physical therapy which didn’t improve her physical status, got diagnosed w/dementia, terminal cancer & was advised to have 24hr skilled nursing so they admitted her to the NH part of the facility as of May 1.
So technically she’s only been gone from her house since Feb & that isn’t 12 months, but given the reasoning that my mom is in hospice now, her time is limited.
My question is could my mom ask the NH to let her back to her house to die?
But they would have to know that the house is inhabitable now (I’ve sold most of the furniture & appliances), all that’s there is mom’s bed & a dresser.
Plus she’d be completely alone again like how she was the last time she fell in Feb.
She doesn’t have the funds to hire live in nurses.
But as a legal issue, is the NH bound by any kind of “protective service” for the elderly?
Meaning the patients right to leave is over ruled by a medical doctors diagnosis that they can no longer care for themselves, so they can just allow her to leave the facility & go home to an empty house..
