I am sorry to hear what you are going through. The Green River Area Development District - Phone:(###) ###-#### ***** ***** agency that may be able to help you. They serve seniors. They also have a hotline you can call if someone is exploiting you. As you said, if your daughter is filing "false reports", this would be considered Elder Abuse". It is exploitation. Here is the web link: http://www.gradd.com/AHSS/Elder_Abuse/ Here is the Elder Abuse Hotline > (800)(###) ###-####/strong>.

The law protects you. In Kentucky, there has to be evidence presented to a judge that you are a “danger” to yourself or others. This evidence would have to come from a mental health professional at a hospital. You would have to say something to the mental health professional that you wanted to cause harm to yourself or your family. If the mental health professional finds you are a harm to yourself of or others, he/she has to go to court and give this evidence. If a court finds there is evidence, he/she can hold you for NO MORE THAN 72 hours.

Here is what the law actually says:

KY. REV. STAT. ANN. § 202A.041(1) § 202A.028(1)

[A] individual [who] is mentally ill and presents a danger or threat of danger to self, family, or others if not restrained shall [be taken by a peace officer] into custody and transport[ed] without necessary delay to a hospital or psychiatric facility. Following an examination by a qualified mental health professional and a certification by that professional that the person meets the criteria for involuntary hospitalization, a judge may order the person hospitalized for a period not to exceed seventy-two (72) hours, excluding weekends and holidays

(2) "Danger" or "threat of danger to self, family, or others" means substantial physical harm or threat of substantial physical harm upon self, family, or others, including actions which deprive self, family, or others of the basic means of survival including provision for reasonable shelter, food, or clothing;
