Can they make him go to a nursing home even though he doesn’t want to? 7 Answers as of May 08, 2014My father in law had a stroke and was on life support. An emergency power of attorney was given. His first son and brother in law are the two power of attorneys. He now lives with me and my husband his youngest son. He can't walk because of the stroke. We take care of him and have been now for over a year. My husband's brother who has power of attorney is now sending my father in law to a nursing home. He doesn't want to go. He wants to stay here with us.

I guess that you can contest it, but as his condition deteriorates, it will become too hard for an untrained person to fulfill. You may want to rethink that, and explain it to him.

If your father-in-law is still mentally competent, he can revoke the power of attorney. If not, your husband can go to court and? seek guardianship, and if he's successful his authority will override his brother's power of attorney.
