NO/DCF came out/ starting asking my crazy questions/ completed forms/said they woulld be back to investigate more/ saying things like DCF could remove her/ put her
in safe place- paper work they left said can/cannot have attourney present??
2 fire trucks/EMT showed up on request of home heatlh care nurse/ they came
saw situation/ were baffled/ checked her out/she was fine/ and were speaking out of side of there mouth " like somebody is way out of bounds/ cops said/ just call home health care people right back next time" But no telling what that nurse said to DCF/ so investigators are coming back out on Monday/ (and cops/EMT's have no say)- It is all this lady who was out here for 45 minutes
Dear JACUSTOMER - I understand the situation. You need to be very careful and I would not talk to anyone about this. Whatever you say can and will be used against you and nothing you say is going to help you. I know you care for your Mom but you could end up being charged with a crime and she would still be out of the house. Until you know the intentions of the authorities you need to remain silent. You have no duty to allow them into your house without a warrant and if you are charged with a crime you definitely need an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney the court will appoint counsel. If you can afford an attorney you may want to get a consultation appointment now.
These types of situations can escalate once the state gets involved and you can't control what they do. Based on your facts I see no neglect but that doesn't mean these government employees will not try to justify their jobs and cause you a lot of trouble. Right now you need to think of yourself whether your Mom is removed or not. Her situation can be dealt with at a later time.
The Police and Fire/Rescue (called to check mom out) they left satisfied with answers
I have no idea where DCF lady is going with this/ her first question to my mom was "how many days did ur son leave u"- my mom was home 30 minutes(tops)- then nurse showed up/ home health care company/ I choice/hired/ But this nurse was hanging around/ outside like she had nailed someone/
come down to this Dr who walks through this facility put 24 hour care recommended
/did not say required/ and DCF is using that/ 24 hour care as base for charge of neglect/ with having mother removed from home
