My grandmother was recently placed in an assisted living facility in Maine. She has alzheimers but is in regular assisted living right now. I am very close with her but live 3 hours away and like to know what's going on with her. My aunt who has DPOA and lives locally, will not share any info with me. During my visit today, I asked the head nurse some questions such as can her window be opened more than 4" and can I take her off site for a car ride or to lunch? She gave me her card and asked me to call her to discuss once my grandmother wasn't around. I called and left a messsage. I then find out that the nurse called my Aunt and told her she didn't feel comfortable giving me info since I didn't have the POA. Huh? What rights do I have as a concerned relative if I have questions and am being kept in the dark by my family members? Any legal advice would be greatly appreciated! I am not sure what my aunt is capable at this point in keeping me from getting information out of spite. Very unfortunate situation! Thank you!
