Recently my Mom who lives in an independent home has ask for control of her medications. Prior to this I had been filling her pill trays and taking them to her. After 4 weekly visit to the ER for high blood pressure and then a fall out of her bed resulting in a hospital stay and rehab, I decided that we should hire a caregiver that works on site in her independent living apartments. Because both my husband and myself have full time jobs, this made sense to us. Mom has a history of many frequent trips to the ER because of high blood pressure thus giving her Kidneys a 30% functionality. We decided that she was deciding to not take some of her pills because at the time her blood pressure seemed to low to her. Mom seems to be doing better because this caregiver is giving her medications at the proper time but she is making all kinds of lies about the caregiver. She has reacted to all this by being very angry and irrational and says that she is never going back to any of her doctors or hospital because they recommended for us to hire this caregiver. I have told her that it is our decision also. Everyone she meets or talks to, she tells them that she wants her medication back and that means her pill bottles and to be able to contact the pharmacy for refills. We have advised her Doctors of this. My question is would it be legal to have her sign a legal document that states her children are not responsible for anything concerning her health if we give her control of her medication? We have talk to her about moving to assisted living but she will have none of this. Right now, she just want accept the fact that this is the best thing for her.
