Unfortunately, generally, once an elderly person is place in an assisted living facility, the next of kin who has medical POA would not have any input when it comes to administering any drugs, even if the drugs were prescribed on as needed basis by a medical doctor, as it would be up to the Assisted Living Facility medical staff to determine when such medication should be given, based on their training and observation of the resident's condition.
I wish you the best of luck!
