Hi. I am new on here. I am an only child. My mom and I have pretty much no family. It is past time for her to go into assisted living because there are many things she cannot do including ADLs. I am her HCPOA. I am not her financial POA yet, but we are working on that, as she just had back surgery. My question is, can I research assisted living facilities without her being present? I have no idea what she can afford between her Medicare, health insurance, and SS. Does anyone know if this is possible without her being there? We have talked about assisted living a couple of times, but I can’t stand to see her live alone and incapable of taking care of herself. Anyone out there know? BTW, we live in NC if that matters. Thanks.
