This Week's Carenote - 4/22/10

 

I have a neighbor who is having a trouble with dementia.  That in itself is not the problem.  As often happens some unknown couple started taking care of her - but was exploiting the situation.  That is not the problem either. Just trying to lay the ground work.  Once several of her concerned neighbors confronted them - they did leave but reported her to the state as being incapable.
 
I am now trying to see that she does not go into the system - but place her in a nice place that can take care of her - I thought we had all out information together when we went before the judge - but he says we have until Tuesday to submit a complete care plan for her before he will make a judgment  in her case to not put her in the system and let us take comtrol.
 
Could you please suggest what I need to put together for the judge - what issues does he want to address.  I am willing to do anything - just not sure exactly what he means by submitting a complete care plan for her. We have already found a nice facility for her and she has the money to take advantage of this.
 
I am assuming certain things - like becoming POA or Guardian - but what else - what does he mean by a complete care plan?
 
This is urgent -  If you could please help me I would certainly appreciate it.
 
Thank you
