My cousin is refusing to go into Assisted Living. The Dr, is insisting and I agree. I won't give the details, but it's necessary. I have Healthcare POA, but it only kicks in when the Dr. says she is not able to make medical decisions on her own. So, with that in hand, will the sheriff help me transport her to the facility? I wonder if he will do it without a court order. I'm trying to avoid Guardianship, as I don't want to be hers. I've read here about the ER, but am confused.
