Find Care & Housing
Zander, many people do this as a last resort. If you are the POA, you could be charged with abandonment, so immediately resign your POA in writing. As long as you haven't been taking money or co-mingling bank accounts, there is not much they can do to you. You should let the parent's MD know how desperate this situation is. You should let APS know how bad this is. You should let family know you can't do this anymore. Of course, if you are living in his house, you are out of there immediately.

I would hope for some permanent help. Such as placement in assisted living or nursing home. I am finding it difficult to find any meaningful assistance. For example, the county offers day care. This situation is well beyond daycare.I know that elderly without children get assistance but it seems that if there is a caregiver avaliable help is hard to get.
