My mom is on hospice care at home she lives alone currently she is on the max care hospice can give and if i want more care they told me to hire outside help and gave me a list of people that do it.
After calling them i found out how costly it would be when compared to a nursing home. She wants to stay at home no matter what plus she has pets that are a comfort to her.
Can you force them into a nursing home if you have POA? The POA she had made states I can make life decisions, open accounts etc for her.
She has money to pay for it in a 5 year CD that still has 3 years left that has a pay on death beneficiary that is not me. It's a charity, If I cash it out and put it into a checking account what happens to the beneficiary?
I don't think I will need all the money in the account unless she lives for a year.
What I really don't understand is how hospice can let her stay at home alone, I guess they can only do as the patient wants. They know she is suicidal and they want me to limit some of her stronger meds so she can't take the whole thing she tells me that she is in so much pain and she does not want to live this way.....ie doing nothing but sleeping and watching TV.
I don't know what to do.
