I get the feeling from what is written that she and her two daughters are all POAs. Two of them (the daughters) wanted to leave their father in AL, but the wife doesn't feel he is being well care for. Is that right, JET?

First off, having 3 POAs is very messy. I can't imagine trying to get two or three people to agree on the best course of action. It could be that the AL is enough if there was someone who was able to check and change your husband's undergarments when needed. This does not seem like it would be a difficult situation to work through if there are not other problems. Do you feel he would be better in another place, JET?

The only way to get rid of their POA is to pursue Guardian status in court. This will be expensive, since the POA's will probably challenge JET's ability to care for her husband. Expect a long, protracted fight.

Jet, here is what needs to be done, have someone buy a bag of Depend "Guards", these are like a pad and said pad is placed inside the Depends. When wet, the Guards are easy to remove and replace with a fresh one.

I see from your profile that your husband has memory issues, do you think he would know when to change the Guards?

Just curious why your daughters are living with their father at the Assisted Living facility? That sounds very expensive. If the facility cannot take care of your husband, you are right it is time to move him to a higher level of care.

What type of a facility does his assessment indicate? I think it depends on the state laws, but in my state of NC, a resident can reside in Assisted Living if they are bladder incontinent. Of course,they need to be cared for properly. Changing the underwear is not something you would need a skilled nurse for though. Trained staff should be able to do it.

If the daughters have POA, I'd share my concern over the apparent lack of care with his diapers and ask that they address the AL facility about it. Most AL's that I know of provide any assistance that the resident needs ,such as hygiene, bathing, changing clothes, etc.
