I got a call today from a nursing home rehab they may be moving my dad to. The lady said, since this is expected to be only a 21 day stay his insurance will cover it & there will be nothing owed. She also said that even if there was any bill, they wouldn't be able to hold me responsible. (My dad has no POA & I'm his only child.) Since he is independent still she was going to call & talk to him too, but had wanted to talk to me to find out about his situation (how he ended up needing rehab). She asked if I'd consider being his sponsor, which had nothing to do with finances, but it would make me the contact person if anything happened while he's there, or when he's ready to leave. I hate to be such a skeptic, but I wanted to know for sure if that's true.
