I am the DPOA and signed her rental agreement. I signed as the responsible party because my mother who was 94 at the time and had dementia wasn't able to sign. After living there for about 3 months and after several falls and trips to the ER a doctor wrote an order for nursing home. The assisted living facility charged us $5000 due to "extra care" my mother needed the last month she was there. However, she did not return after the last fall and we never got any sort of refund from the 10 days left in that month that she wasn't there. Now they are trying to get an additional $2500 from me because I signed as the responsible party. I never signed anything saying that I was personally financially responsible. I only signed because I am the DPOA. Now my mother is on Medi-Cal and has no assets, so they are trying to get money from me.
