My father is 85 years old & wants to bring my stepmom home with only four hours of care in the morning. The doctor recommended my stepmom receive 24/7 care. I told dad the nursing home needs to know who’s helping you so they can document it. He was going to lie to them and give false names. He’s also going to allow my step-grandma (who is 98 years old) to help him in the afternoon. Grandma lives in another state and she’s being cared for by her church members in her home. My sister & I have worked out other arrangements before mom’s release but dad has disagreed with all of our recommendations. Can the nursing home release a dementia patient to only receive a 1/3 of the recommended care? I’m really afraid for both of them especially grandma.
