My husband, post stroke with vascular dementia, has been in long term care, dementia unit, for 4 months. The facility is top notch with very caring staff. Husband is difficult to manage at times and very insistent that he wants to go home. There is no way I could handle him at home emotionally or physically, even with help as he gets verbally/emotionally abusive and can be a danger to himself as he thinks he’s more physically capable than he is. He’s fallen multiple times because he ignores the staffs instruction to ask for assistance. I have POA, but the Social Worker, at the facility, states that since he continues to want to go home, and Medicaid is pending, that I may have to seek Conservatorship to legally hold him there. Is this true? Isn’t POA enough? He is not safe to come home. If he came home, I would leave. That’s how much it scares me. We are both 72.
