She is in a skilled nursing facility receiving physical therapy following pneumonia but I don't want to take her home as long as she is taking these medications due to her altered mental status and increased risk of falls. Any suggestions?

78ajrhope, just don't take her home. No one can force you to take a patient. You talk to the discharge coordinator and make that crystal clear.

Has your mom been receiving these meds at the rehab facility? If so, ask for a meeting with the director of nursing and express your concerns to her. She isn't able to take your mom off the meds but she has better access to the Dr. than you do. And then stay on it until you get an acceptable resolution.
