My father-in-law has been living with my husband and I. He was recently diagnosed with a very large brain tumor. He was given the option of surgery and was given no promises that it would do him any good considering they would be removing most of the left lobe. So he refused the surgery seems the prognosis was so gloomy. He has progressivly gotten worse and is falling 2-3 times a day and isn't getting the proper nutrition due to his fear of falling more. I make sure he gets at least one good meal a day but some days he fumbles his way to bed before I even get off work. My husband and I both work full time jobs so niether one of can be home 24 hours a day and we are expecting our first child in a few weeks and after much debating we have reached the conclusion we can no longer give him the help he needs. He doesn't have a POA though and is very stubborn and has lost a great deal of his reasoning skills due to the swelling of the tumor. We are looking at placing him in a home or something similer so he can get the care hwe needs but without a POA we have to have his full consent right? Is there any way we can gain control of his medical care if we can prove he no longer knows whats best for himself?
