Will I be charged with abuse/neglect for following his wishes. My dad is very frail and unable to live on his own; he is currently in a nursing home and down to 95 pounds because he refuses to eat the pureed food and thickened liquids his doctor orders. He wants me to take him home so he can eat and drink what he wants and live out his life the way that he wants to regardless of his doctor's orders. I would like to give him a good quality of life for his last few years. He does not have dementia and is able to make his own decisions. If I follow his wishes can I be held liable for abuse or neglect?
