Mom's doctor gave my mom a SLUM test to determine her level of dementia! She only asked 2 questions and then wrote down that mom scored 5 and didn't ask any other questions! There's 20 questions on a SLUM test! Her doctor has done other shady stuff! My question is--- has anyone here called the Omsbudman of their state and if so, what was your experience with them?
Also, I was told by APS that even if I give advance notice, if I leave I will be charged with elder abandonment! My mom is violent and punches me and hits me with her cane! I'm disabled! Geez.... What about my rights? Also, once mom gets Medicaid and is placed in a facility, I have been told I HAVE to clean up the house and sell it myself! My mom's a hoarder and there's HEAVY furniture here! My partner can't help me because his back is REALLY messed up! His doctor said his back is in terrible shape! What do I do? I am in Oregon! Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any help you can give me!
