Her PCP has just diagnosed her with 'bipolar' disorder. Currently, she is residing in an Independent Retirement Community, but I am having additional caregivers help me, (and they require payment). I have DPOA. Mom's PCP has stated that she should be in a more assisted type environment. Mom will not go for that. What can I do? The additional caregivers will break her financially, so it can't continue. Any suggestions? Can I legally move her to a rehabilitation, assisted type retirement community? And if so, what are the absolute best in and around the Austin/Cedar Park area? I've seen one and was not pleased with their staff, or their attitudes. I want someone who will actually 'care' for my Mother, in my absence. I am one of the children who does visit very frequently, but with her medication and her dosing herself, I cannot be there 24/7.
