My mother is in assisted living. Yes, she's a crotchety person. Diabetic, COPD from among other issues. My sister is health care proxy. The issue for this moment is that my mom's oxygen level gets low and is supposed to be taking oxygen but refuses and 'doesn't want it in the room'. Have heard that kids can get sued by the state if they don't 'take care of their parents' but what is one supposed to do when the parent absolutely refuses to do what they should be doing? Apparently, the caregivers can't get her to take it as well.
Thoughts on how to proceed or what are the legal ramifications if something bad happens due to a directly related care issue that the health care proxy can't handle due to the individual refusing care?
