Hey there....I was here in 2001 and you people really helped me with my mom and her Alzhiemer's.....now I need your help again....my boss's dad has Alzhiemer's and is in Arizona...anyone familiar with that state?  I'm in Washington State and I'm sure they have different laws down there....what I would like to know is how to get help for my boss in getting her dad to get admitted to an Alzhiemer's Home....evidentaly S. registered her dad with a Home, S. has the power-of-attorney, but until he says "yes" S. can't get him admitted. In fact, she can't even get him out of the car if they go somewhere, except back to his place. As we all know, denial is a HUGE part of the begining stages of the big A....she finally got the van disabled so he can't drive, but S. works up in the North here, her dad won't move in with her (she brought him up here to stay for a while and THAT was a huge disaster).....she's been down there since the 10th of Dec. trying to talk her dad into going into this wonderful place that has a golf course and all, and he won't go.  She even arranged for Meals-on-wheels and he left the house after they called to say they'd be there.  Any ideas?  Suggestions?  Anything would be welcomed.

The Dr. has diagnosed her dad with Alzhiemer's....but as I've learned from experience with my mother's situation, that's as far as a Dr. is will to go in Washington..when we took mom back to her Dr. to have her tell mom that she would need help with her condition the Dr. changed her evaluation from a level 4 to a level 2 rather than tell mom she needed help...which made mom think she was getting better.....that's why I'm asking about Arizona.....do the Dr.s in Arizona have more "power" in helping place an elder, rather than having to go thru the courts and have him declared incompetent?

Please contact the Alzheimer's Association. You can't count on the Dr.'s. for everything. Here in Florida I have come to rely heavily on the Alzheimer's Association. They are a wealth of knowledge.
