My parents ( 97 and95) still live in their home with only the help and care of my sister and I. Once their phone ringer didn't work and when we couldn't get in touch with them we called the police to do a wellness check. My sister and I don't live nearby but take turns going and helping them or a regular basis. My son's girlfriend is a nurse in a rehab facility an hour away. Of course we were worried for their safety which she knew about but she said she wouldn't hesitate to report elder abuse if this or another incident involving the police calling on them was to happen.She said she talked to a social worker who told her if she "knew" about this and didn't report it that she could lose her nursing license(which is her livelihood) Is this true? She insists that they belong in a nursing home, but we can't afford it and the fact that it is both of them makes things complicated. She is an alarmist and very outspoken which concerns my sister and I that she will complicate things even more, setting things in motion ( that we won't know how to handle or that we can't afford).
