  • If you dont mind me asking whats wrong with her? Takin her away from her enviroment might make it worse on her. Did you think about hiring someone to either live there with them or have someone come in to help with the things that she needs? Its probably cheaper that way then putting her in a home where you dont really know how she is going to be treated. Or if worse comes to worse see if they would be willing to move in with you or other family

  • Call her dr and see what other options there are. I don't think you can put her in one without her permission and that of her husband. There may be other things you can do like have a nurse come in to the home.

  • Can he take care of her with support? In home support is a great option. I have worked in long term care and the longer they can stay independant the better.
