My 62 year old brother is living with me and is disabled/alcoholic. I am 70 years old, live in my own home and still work three days a week in order to keep my home. Recently injured my back, am diabetic, and have multiple age related problems. Last night he fell out of bed twice so sleep is frequently interrupted.I fear for his safety and only get assurances from the multiple agencies that they will get a caregiver for him (Columbia MH, Melina, (too many to mention). I am without any assistance and don't think I can manage anymore. Please help.
JA: Were the police contacted? Is there an active case or investigation?
Customer: No. Just lots of ambulances, Mental Health Facilities such as Columbia MH, Melina...., I spoke to Columbia MH and told them m back has recently been injured. My brother is not violent (no issues) but he also experienced a stroke and was in Salmon Creek Hospital.I just need someone to help when I am away at work.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Last time he lived with me I was his caregiver so at the time everything that needed to be filed was completed. This time he is trying to go through Melina and they said they said they would get a caregiver...,then nothing. They won't talk with me because of Hippa
laws and I don't know what to do. He is suicidal and has made repeated attempts ending in hospitalization. If anything happens what can I do? I just need some help.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. I just need some help. Thank you
