My dad recently went home after being in hospital and nursing home for 6 months. He loves to be active, walking and exercising daily. Mom will not permit us to build a ramp and dad is unable to make it up and down the 6 steps into their home. So he cannot leave the house. Their house is small and excessively cluttered so he can barely make it to the bathroom with his walker, let alone walk around for exercise. He is bored and wants to exercise because when he doesn't, his pain is unbearable. He says he wants to get out, live in an assisted care facility, nursing home, hospital, anywhere that he is able to get out and walk. He says if he can't then he might as well kill himself. We are trying to fill out paperwork to get him on the waiting list for assisted care facilities, but they need their financial information. Mom refuses to give us the info, or help with or sign the forms. She also refuses to appoint a POA. We cannot get his name on the wait list if she won't sign because they have joint accounts. Is there any legal ways to get around this?
