To make this as brief as possible, my mom age 84 almost 85 was hospitalized last year (dad passed away 2012) and told hospital my oldest son, age 26, was her FT caregiver. He wasn't. However, he has since become that due to those events. Things have progressed to where he is no longer able to give her the care she requires. She refuses now to help herself and is not in good shape physically or mentally. She absolutely refused to discuss living anywhere else when she was in the hospital even though I was telling her and staff she wasn't able to live alone. She isn't. Her finances are horrible. My son has POA and took them over to the best he can, but she cannot afford to move. Needs to file bankruptcy due to cc debt and an upside down mortgage. There's a lot more to this, of course, but my main question is what do we need to do to assign her care to someone like a social worker. I have read about dropping people off at the ER. We have already decided when she goes back to the hospital again we will refuse to take her home. Again, she is NOT physically or mentally able to live alone. My son needs his life back and there is no one else. She refuses all other assistance. Any and all advise will be appreciated.
