My mother has been diagnosed with mild-moderate dementia impacting her ability to do complex tasks but not live independently (she lives in a Sr. Building). A resident's adult child continues to report me for abuse, neglect & financial exploitation. Each time Adult Protective Services (APS) investigates & their findings are inconclusive. It's getting old since I've never met the person filing the reports & she only sees my mother once every 6 months. The definition of a "vulnerable adult" in MN leaves room for interpretation. I do not believe my mother fits the definition. APS claims she does but, of course, can't give me any rationale due to confidentiality. They want me to get FT care for my Mother. She doesn't want it nor can she afford it. Seems like overreaching. How can I stop this?There should be some recourse from false reports being made against me. Shouldn't an adult be able to direct her own life? It seems dementia is now the new ADHD. What senior hasn't been diagnosed with cognitive impairment? Her apartment is clean, she's clean, she's well fed, we have a companion that comes in 3x a week, she pays her bills, can articulate what she wants/doesn't want. A nurse, coincidentally visited the same week this happened and indicated that my mother was not home bound and that seeing her going forward would be welfare fraud. How can one deal with such divergent medical opinions. And, does APS even have access to her medical records without a court order. It feels like my mother has once again become an infant with no rights and somehow I am to blame because I have POA.
