She has moderate memory loss. She doesn't want to go to a facility and I don't think. it is necessary at this time, however her doctor insists that she should be placed somewhere. We have home health care going to her home 3 times a week, a person that lives with her and both my brother and I check on her several times a week. Additionally we have taken steps to ensure that she is safe in her home like unplugging the stove etc. Despite everything that we have done her doctor calls me every day asking me what our plans are and when are we going to place her in a facility. My mother has not been ruled incompetent and I have POA both medically and financially. I don't know what to do anymore. What can be done legally to protect her rights to stay in her home? Before my mother got dementia she told me that she never wanted to be in a nursing home. Why should she be forced to go into a home? She recently spent 6 weeks in a nursing home after falling and breaking her hip and she was miserable. Every day she asked me when was she going to get to go home. I know that my mom probably only has a few years at most left to live, she has congestive heart failure among other things but why can't she be at home to live out her remaining years?
