Find Care & Housing
Agree, no. No one but grandmother can take away your POA. The only way they could "take it away" is if they were able to get guardianship. To get that though, they would have to prove no family member was involved or you were not paying for her care if private pay. This is mainly NHs. Have never heard of an AL being able to this.

You need to give the AL a copy of her POAs, mainly medical. Also, if Gma wants a DNR make sure one is in her file. As POA you are entitled to know any medical info. You r the one they call if they fall or need to be transferred to a hospital. Also, the one that sits for care meetings.

Gma is a resident. The AL is now her home and she has rights. Like any facility, she cannot be made to do anything she doesn't want to. You have no worries.

No. You may have to sign paperwork for her as POA and have to make sure her bills are paid however. Did the AL give you this impression?

No, you won't. Why are you concerned? One poster had a facility whose line was 'we are her family now', which is totally unacceptable. It this your problem?
