It is likely that I will be appointed guardian for my 91 yo mom, but I am not sure what that entails or what to do next. Mom has always been very independent but with the advent of dementia, she has become aggressive, delusional, and confused. She also has incontinence, and mobility issues. Nevertheless, she resists medical help and has said she will physically fight any aides that might come into the home. She is no longer able to live alone, but I don't know how to "persuade" her to move closer to my family several hundred miles away. I thought that having guardianship would help, but now that it is a possibility, I don't see how it is. Does anyone have advise on how they have handled situations like this?
