I work for an in--home care agency as General Manager. We have a alz/dementia client whose son Ray takes very good care of her. but the guardian, his aunt refuses to allow more hours of care. Ray is exhausted but keeps going on. Son Ray has Aspergers Autism.
Very bright but also paranoid with major trust issues. His mother, our client, is incontinent and he cleans her up faithfully on his 19 hour shift. We are only in there 3-4 hours per week day. We provide 5 hours on each weekend day. This is insufficient time
for Ray to recharge. Ray only has a sister Becky who is mentally challenged and disruptive. Ray understands and functions logically. He cannot handle funds. He cannot work nor drive. He and his mother lived together for years and she does not want any other
family member replacing Ray. And, when she was lucid, she adamantly stated she never wanted to be in a nursing home/assisted living place. She wants to be at home. She has a trust about 3 million that funds have not been released for her care. Husband deceased.
Aunt as guardian is a wack job. Keeps Ray unsettled and rarreled by threats of police coming in and DHHR or a senior service govenrment agency coming in to push him out and put mom in a facility. A guardian must surface soon to replace the resigning sister.
As an employee
or the business who signed the client up for care and who continues as coordinator, does that disquality me as guardian. The client lives in Martinsburg WV. HELP l
