I have read similar questions such as this one. The last year, particularly the last month has been very eventful for my parents. My dad is 91 and my mom is 93. They have lived at home alone up until now. Dad has home health who comes in twice a week to give him a bath and one a month to change his catheter. He is in a wheelchair and suffers from dementia. I have no POA. I have 2 sisters who do not have POA either. My mother has fallen 4 times in the last month and was placed in a nursing home. She will not be returning home. Social Services has been visiting my parents for 5 years. Since mom's placement, I have hired someone to come to the house in the afternoon for laundry and to fix dad a meal. Sometimes he eats, sometimes he does not. After mom's placement, I went to an attorney to petition the court for guardianship and conservatorship. Social Services agrees that my dad needs to be removed from the home. They were going to visit him early this past week and were unable to visit him. So they went on Friday. Dad was sharp as a tack when they visited and said they did not see a reason to remove him from the home on that day. The social worker said she would try several times this week. He is usually not so lucid. So I am going to court on Thursday. I am very anxious about it. Could the court give guardianship of mom to dad? If they did, he would move her back home and she would probably die with the month. He has expected her to wait on him hand and foot and she is not able. The other thing is that if dad does understand what is going on, I'm afraid he will lock me out of his house. I do all their bills and most of the errands.
