My mom has Bipolar 2 and is very manic. We are trying to get her meds under control but she keeps escaping the assisted living. The facility is not a locked down facility and they are saying she needs to move out. I don't have long term care coverage yet but submitted all the paperwork. Originally we thought she had dementia but it isn't looking like she does. What are my options? My house is not one. I have two small children and work full time. I am going to look for other facilities but if I can't find a place that will take her then what happens? Does she go on the streets? Would the state take her? She is very defiant right now and I don't think I can keep doing this as her POA anymore. It's been over a year now. I want to get her help and keep her safe but its affecting my family now too and my health. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
