My father's wife and her sons have taken him to an attorney where he signed all legal POAs and medical revoked/rewritten this while all knew that both Drs have advised he doesn't have ability to make financial or medical decisions. Additionally, same thing at the local bank.
We have a concern about his safety and medication management. She has taken his medications herself by accident and endangered him in multiple ways, so we are pursuing guardianship. I made so many trips and stayed over and witnessed this as well as others have been concerned and reporting things they have seen.
My family would like to know who has been through this personally and can help us know what to expect during the court proceedings? We have an attorney and we have so many examples showing how they both have been exploited. My father believes things that are not true as result of his delusions and what he has been told or not corrected and will become very aggitated at me! Unless, I am there and decelerate the moment and explain in his reality. Especially thinking his children have stolen his money, car or ransacked house, etc. This is a mess and I have been advised to pursue this but none of this had to happen if the family would have continued working with us for decisions that impacting someone that is still has highs and lows.
We are most concerned that his wife has not followed the Dr. recomendations and has medical problems which make her ability to care for him compromised. She gets lost while driving and even gave him her keys to go get them food Labor Day weekend. They were were told he could not drive earlier this summer.
Also, I would like to know who might help us with the difficulty to deal with making medical decisions on where he should live and how to help with the transition within the family. I have tried to help them stay together at their house by finding the previous in home careprovider. I am not certain that the in home care with his wife will be accomplished unless she will be agreeable to accept changes to increase safety in the home environment. She left the gas stove on several times and this was brought to her family's attention.
Now, I am concerned we need to have a certified non-biased company to provide medical management at high priority times and allow supervision for aggitiation and nighttime mobility. She has extreme hearing loss and takes sleeping pills.
