If guardianship (that I have temporarily) was supposed to help me, then why am I still having trouble getting him into a nursing home?
I had one nursing home that said they would take dad two months ago but that I needed POA or guardianship since he refused. I decided against this one because there were some things I did not like. For example, uncleaned patient smells at different times of the day. The last time was right at lunch and it still reeked. Not only that there are ads in the paper for help wanted CNA, RN, LPN on every shift.
Then I decided to try the other one in my area that is smaller. Not 100% on this one because it showed at one time there were verbal abuse issues but not recently. I asked the primary to submit anyway. Well, the nursing home called me back stating they would not be able to admit him into long-term care without a hospital stay. Sigh!
Now I've asked the primary to submit to the last two (one that he was in previously (45-minutes away) and another one that is 30-minutes away). If both of these nursing homes come back stating the same, I'm afraid it'll be back to his home and having to deal with my siblings until something happens to require a hospital stay.
I've been trying the hospital route, last time November, and each time they said nothing could be found requiring admissions.
Before I start making arrangements for him to go back home, could anyone let me know if I may be missing some steps?
