Especially related to wanting or not wanting home health services.
I am an extremely involved daughter, visiting my parents at AL at least every other day for an hour or more; also I lived with them for 5 years up until 2 years ago - my point of telling you that is that I am more aware than anyone at the AL facility of my parents' condition.
My parents are old school and do not want to "talk" about their feelings; believe me I've tried various times over the last few years. They do NOT want it and I have decided I will not force that on them in their last weeks/months/years on this planet. YET the AL executives order 'SOCIAL WORK" consult without either my or my parents' permission. Can they do this? Can they kick my parents out if we refuse home health? [I will call their doctor for an in-facility visit or take them to a doctor outside the facility when they need it.]
