My mom had a stroke a little over a year ago and has been in the nursing home since. The stroke, along with early onset dementia has really effected her mental state. My dad is still living, but not in very good health himself, so when she first had the stroke, before she lost the mental capacity to do so, she named my sister and I as POA’s so my dad didn’t have to be present every time we needed a piece of paper or a signature. The nursing home has been pushing for me to allow them to act on mom’s behalf, as far as her Medicaid and Medicare goes.
Has anyone had any experience with this? I’m just not sure I trust them to act in her best interest, but I could just be a bit paranoid because I don’t care for the NH administrator.
TIA for any input
