She has MS and I've always kinda checked on her.  She fell inside her home and was in the hospital.  She has no other family.  One of her friends has POA and doesn't think she's fit to live at home. Her dog has been boarded at the vet for the weeks this has been going on.

She's afraid she'll never get to come home and she'll lose her house and her dog.

Her name is Pam if you feel inclined to pray for her. I would appreciate it.

Flyover, that could be any of us. I will definitely pray for her. Can you find out if she has any ins coverage?? Even Medicaid or Medicare. And depending on the state, she might be eligible for home care. Can you contact her friend to find out, or even the facility?

That reality hit me tonight.  One of her other friends is who called me to inform me where she was.

She's in her 70s so I think home health would be partially paid for.  Her friend that's POA doesn't think much of anyone but herself.  She's been kinda nasty to me and according to Pam hasn't been to see her in days.

I saw her car over there a few days ago along with a moving truck.  I hope she's helping and not stealing her stuff or planning to sell her home.

Get a "trail cam" at Wal-Mart or Academy for about 40 bucks or less and mount hidden (on a tree or Bush) to watch the comings and goings at her house...

Is her "friend" scamming her/ using her for benefit checks or something?

Doesn't sound friendly.

She can rescind that power of attorney any time, at least that's the way it is here in NC.

You know she's stealing if it's not hers. That's horrible.

That's the problem.  I feel helpless.  She doesn't have her cell phone or any of her own clothes.  Her friend has her house key.  I can't do anything

How sad to have no other family

I’m glad you’re trying to help

And the poor dog ... ugggg

Prayers for your friend!

There is a social worker at the rehab facility that she can talk to, I think she should. The social worker needs to help.

When my aunt was in the nursing home there was a lady there that the social worker helped her manage her money. She saw all the bank statements and the expenses any time she wanted to.

Here all she has to do is sign another POA and someone else assumes the duties. This is wrong. I'm so sorry!

Pam's good friend that I've been talking to said Pam spent $100k on QVC last year.  She may not have much left other than her house.  She can't drive so she orders everything

I appreciate the advice.   I won't let her languish in that assisted living place if I can do anything about it

She gave me some green caramel apples that were rolled in mini chocolate chips from QVC.  They were the best .
