Here’s the latest reader question – which is more a commentary, along with some valuable information – along with my reply:
Gary writes: I am going through the same situation you are with my mom as you are with yours. Our situation is so off the rails it is unbelievable. Nevertheless, I am making progress. I have been able to remove my mother from her home twice in the last two weeks for “trips.” Even though she uses a wheelchair, I am able to get her in and out of my car. Once we are in the car, we go where we want to go. I could write a book about our ordeal but I don’t have time right now. Let me give you three quick tips. Perhaps, I can write more later.
3. Although it is none of the business of facility or the police, tell them you are removing your mother for a trip to a doctor or medical facility. You do not have to justify anything to anyone. Heck, you don’t even have to take your mom anywhere near a medical facility. It is nobody’s business what you do.
My reply: This is some top-shelf information, so thanks are in order first of all. My sister and I have yet to challenge the warden directly in this manner but this gives us hope that we may be able to do so.
I am publishing this so that others who are in this situation can also (hopefully) benefit from it as well.
