Is this financial abuse? My parents have a heath care poa. they were very ill and were in a nursing home. they have private nursing home insurance & medicare. The POA moved them to assisted living facility which was not covered by the insurance, about $3500 mos. as they got sicker the poa hired private care nurses which my parents had to pay out pocket, $500 week average. their combined income was only about $3400mos. the poa used all their cash to cover these expenses, plus they have mortgage and other bills to be paid. as they continued to get sicker, she finally moved them back to the nursing home. now their 90day waiting period started over so they have to pay whatever medicare doesnt. my day was hysterial with worry about this. he has since passed away and there is no money to help my mom except what she gets. when they were moved to asstd living all therapy stopped. these were unnecessary expenses which she new wouldnt be covered because she is a nursing director for the company that owns the assisted living facility they were in.
