MY MIL is almost 85 years old and lived alone until this past month. We knew she was developing some dimentia but she ADAMANTLY REFUSED any in home care, and she even had her phone turned off so we bought a verizon home phone for her and went and installed and she ripped it out of the wall. Then last month she fell and the first responders had to break in to get to her and she was hospitalized for four days, no broken bones, but the doctor diagnosed her with vascular dimentia and suggested a nursing home. APS was called when the firemen had to break in .My husband is power of attorney and her only child.We want to move her closer to us so we can visit her often and watch out for her. We found her a wonderful personal care home, which is run by very caring people wihtin five minutes of our house at half what we were paying at the NH near where she lives. The day we were to transfer her she had a mild heart attack, and is now in a SNF in her town till she stabilizes medically to travel. Do we have to notify the APS worker there before we move her to our state? He wasn't extremely helpful other than convincing us to use the specific nursing home she ended up in for nearly 9 thousand a month.....Do we have to check it with anybody*other than Dr. to verify medical stability) before moving her from NM (where she resided) to TX where we live? My husband is an only child and has both MEDICAL and Fianancial power of Attny.
