Hello to all, I have been following this site for several months and have had most of my concerns answered via others' posts so I have not felt the need to post my own questions....until now.
Not sure where to start and how long to make this so I will try my best to be somewhat brief.
FIL and MIL, ages 87 and 86. Living alone in rural north Georgia. Financially sound. He had an accident several years ago that left him in pain and dependent on narcotics. She has dementia/alzeimers. Repeated attempts by us to get help in the home was met with anger on her part. Doctor said "we'll just have to wait for something to happen". Well , it did. He fell down the stairs and fractured his neck and back. That was 2 months ago. He went to rehab and she went to assisted living (not without a fight!). So they're both home now. He's in a hospital bed. We have 24 hour caregivers. Her son, my husband, has POA. We have initiated the papers for guardianship of her (from her own attorney) but would use that as a last resort. My husband is there now. Today, she called the sheriff again. They looked at the POA and left. I dont know what else to do.
