Recently put my mother in Skilled Nursing with the thought of eventually going to Asst. Living. Getting good care - she insists she is going home - wrong. I was her POA and trying to tend to everything long distance. Without telling me she has changed her POA to a friend of hers age 88. I feel sad yet relieved - she has been difficult with me all my life I am 55 - I just want to get on with my life - whatever I have left to live.
