My mother is 75 and has multiple medical problems. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's last summer. My 94 year old step-dad is her caretaker and has been for years. However, he is now becoming very forgetful himself. He needs help now too, but I have been assured his son-in-law will take care of him regardless of what happens with my mother. My mom is not able to drive, can't set up her meds (nor can my step-dad) , can't remember to take her meds, and is having trouble getting around. My step-dad is refusing to do anything, or put her anywhere. It is dangerous there and something needs to be done. Is it possible to get her placed in a nursing home without getting a conservatorship? And, can that be done without assuming financial liability myself?
