    Any recommendations for aphasia being used to declare a person incapacitated in order to have her confined by a Power of Attorney at a full care facility [Florida!, +3years, by 82yo mom and a brother (who resents her for getting all the inheritance from their father, who had separated from the mother). Also,her daughter is too poor and ignorant to see that her mother is fine. The facility does not have the Right to curtain her “patient rights” , She is not legally Incompetent, only GP(of facility) incapable. When she had the ‘right’ to go out to lunch with friends, they would give her sedative drugs unless it was surprise.(I wish we had tested her). She married during lunch once and he is fighting for guardianship. The mom plays a nice sweet woman, but inside she’s NUTS. We got a lawyer, for guardianship but how to find lawyer to compensate for her POOR rehab (1 year she had itchy hives all over her body; when the physicians FINALLY stopped her medicine , which was NEVER necessary for her condition, the hives went away.). When she asked to be moved to a different facility, they sedated her and her mother said NO! even though the facility was in the same town and was deemed satisfactory by her GP. In her 3 years here, the Director of the facility was changed because they were deemed unfit for the job. This facility has publicly know problems with NIH inspections. She has been confined in a place which has treated her exactly like a jail. After her stroke her mental capacity has been severely injured. She has no broken bones so we have trouble getting a civil lawyer.
    The mother has had her house locked up and has refused to pay taxes with the patient’s money. The same with the car. Against her will, the home is being allowed to deteriorate, until the state will reposses and then, the brother or daughter will get some funds when she dies. I would not believe this story, but I have been following this for 4 years, visiting her. I had a severe Traumatic Brain Injury 20 years ago, with a great recovery. I have an autistic child. I nearly received a PhD in EE. This story is the truth. She has not asked for therapy while in this place. She does not trust their physicians because of the horrid medical practice she has seen. (She is not the first patient to have their right’s stolen in this facility, but he dies a year ago)
