My Father-in-law likes to tell stories, which has gotten us investigated in the past. If he bumps himself and bruises; I did it. He absolutely hates me. And even told the Social Worker we are taking advantage of him (we pay rent, supply his food and personal care, and care for him 24 hours a day.) We are thinking it's time for a nursing home. If he keeps story telling the Social Worker can remove him and he will become a ward of the state; leaving him without choices for his care. Do we just let him go and let it happen? His son has General power of attorney. No he is not abused. Example of our problems was yesterday: from Mr. B., let Amanda see me die or help me die. Or its your fault I am like this. We are at our wits end. Can a social worker talk to someone without their power of attorney present?
