Long story short. My mother was taken into custody by DSS in her state. She spent a month in a psychiatric unit and then transferred to an assisted living facility where she has been for the last 2 months. I am in the process of requesting conservatorship which requires a physician affidavit of incapacity. Her internist, who has seen her for 20 yrs won't sign saying the psychiatrist at the psych unit should sign. The psychiatrist states he cannot sign unless he has visually seen her in the last 24 hrs and she would have to be readmitted for that to happen.
Everyone that deals with her recognizes the mental issues (she's 94). Must have the affidavit to proceed.
I feel like I've hit a brick wall. Any suggestions?
