Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm very sorry to hear that this happened.
You have no legal obligation to pay half your son's rent. If he leaves his apartment in the middle of the lease, he could be responsible for rent until a new tenant is found. You don't have to pay that either.
Call Arizona Adult Protective Services. Your son cannot put you in assisted living over your objection, and the law protects you. This is financial exploitation, and it's illegal.
It's also a form of extortion, and you could report your son to police.
