friends with older parents PLEASE READ THIS-
IF you have to put your parent in a skilled facility of ANY kind ALWAYS SIGN the paper work thus: (your name) AS AN AGENT FOR (your parents name)
Sign EVERY paper this way even if you are the legal representative of your parent or sibling, adult child etc...
otherwise they will hold YOU financially responsible I GUARANTEE it- (and that is their goal)
DO NOT believe the person handing you the pen otherwise!
You are NOT financially repsonsible for your parents, your parent is and if they can't sign or won't sign their own name and you don't do what I advised above, there will be problems. I know because I am experiencing this problem now and had our probate attorney tell me this!
