Your husband wants her in nursing home, and so does her doctor but she refuses, right? She has a right to refuse if her mind is sound. If it is not you can petition the probate court for a conservatorship and have your husband appointed conservatee. Mind, you'll have to prove she is incompetent. Merely saying you have seen her drool in her soup won't be enough.
