Hi All, My 84 year old grandmother had a recent hospital stay (4 days) because she severely burned her legs on space heaters, she did not feel her legs being burned. She has dementia and is now in a rehab facility which is also a nursing home. She has periods of being confused and her short term memory is gone, but she has always been aware of what she is and isn't going to do. She has stated to everyone that she is not staying at the nursing home and she is not going to stay with my aunt, but she is going home. I live 4 hours away and have two flight of stairs in my home, so safety is an issue at my house. I have her medical POA, is there a way that I can prevent her from going home if she has hurt herself? She is adamant about going home, but there are some safety concerns. Do I need to petition for guardianship and have two Drs exam her cognitive skills in order to have her declared incompetent in order to get her out of her house?
