Your Questions About Nursing Homes Near

Robert asks…

were can I be a volunteer for seniors?

I am a 13 year old girl and I want to do volunteer work in maybe a nursing home or a senior care center. I live in San Clement, CA. I also realize that most places require you to be at least 16 but, well I’m not. I was just wondering if there were places near here like this.

Chris asks…

When do you need Power of Attorney?

My mother is currently is a skilled nursing home for a few weeks of care. She has her full mental capacities, so I never thought of asking her to give me her Power of Attorney. I also assumed that if anything happened to her, that I would automatically receive Power of Attorney as her nearest living relative. Is this correct? Or could the nursing home try to obtain Power of Attorney?

Healthadvisor answers:

Power of attorney is NEVER automatic.
The nursing home could theoretically try, but probably wouldn’t bother.
Why would they?

As long as she’s conscious and alert, you can bring the mail and checkbook to her there and she can handle her own affairs.

If it makes the two of you feel better, she can write a DURABLE Power of Attorney.
That kicks in ONLY if she’s unconscious or incapacitated, and will continue indefinitely.
Any other POA would be invalid if she was unconscious.

She can give you, or whoever, whatever power she wants to give, such as financial, legal, and medical powers.

Ken asks…

Is it BAD TIMING??!!!…can it work in the near future?

Ok so heres the story its a little long I apologize. Ok so I have known this guy for over 2 years the first time we started hanging out he lived 8 hours away and it just wasn’t convenient. He took me on really fun trips, expensive dinners, I met his family. Since we were so far apart it was hard so we started dating other people. 1 year later we both broke up with our significant others and still kept in touch during our other relationships via facebook and talked on the phone once in a blue moon to see how each other had been..mostly him doing more work. Well I had always had a thing for this guy. After the breakups with the other relationships we started hanging out again. Again he took me to expensive dinners, cool trips, I hung out with his family, he introduced me to friends..co workers..ect. Everyone loved me! He also was the first one to say I love you..he always said it first..he was the one who got pics developed us, he was amazing. After being together for 5 months we started arguing about dumb stuff. Not calling at certain hours of the night..he would get so mad if i didn’t call him before bed after going out with my girlfriends. When I visited him we would have a great time but i felt he was distancing himself a little. When I got back home one night after visiting him for 5 days we had a long conversation on the phone it was great he said he loved me and was here for me. The next day I went jet skiing and he said he was done. He sent me this huge email saying he wanted someone finished with college.He was acting like I was lazy…I was taking 2 summer classes I am not lazy at all! I am 25 years old but I changed my major after receiving 2 other degrees and went back to school for nursing. He said I should of been done a long time ago. Which is really weird he sent me a long *** list of nursing schools near him. He also said I needed to grow up. I hang out with nutcases..I work at hooters all my friends are smart they have college degrees but they like to have fun like me. He said I needed to be hanging out with girls in libraries studying for my entrance exam. If i wasn’t working I needed to be studying. I needed to work more to save money to see him,,that’s also something he told me. I WOULD of worked more if i wasn’t requesting off to see him every other weekend!…He just said right now is not a good time for us hence our lives are very demanding right now (he just started with this new company) maybe down the road. He also said he wants to see if this is right. He broke up with me but still text me saying he missed me. I was like YOU broke up with me why are you still contacting me. He said Im frustrated..doesn’t mean I don’t want you to be out my life completely. I AM SO CONFUSED!..the last thing I told him was that we didn’t need to talk if we were not together too many emotions involved. He was like I understand its not fair to you. Is it really bad timing? We have such a great chemistry and great times together (he has done a lot for me) and we have strong feelings toward each other. He told me once that he would rather be with someone he really cared about than be with someone close to him for convenience and be unhappy. But I feel like his insecurities got the best of him and he couldn’t handle long distance.I am moving for college in the fall and its even closer to him only 4 hours away. I think about him all the time and compare everyone to him because hes the perfect guy, everything I want in a guy. What should I do? Should I just do me and if its meant to be let it fall back into place. I’m not letting him control me. I’m still going to be me..I love having fun (you only live once) He goes out all the time (and I do not care) he doesn’t need to be a hypocrite. He said he already has his degree he can. Help I NEED ADVICE Is it really bad timing??

Healthadvisor answers:

Wow that guy is confusing! It sounds to me like he wanted more out of the relationship than he was getting. More commitment, more time spent, on your part, and that he was ticked off that you are spending your time doing fun things like jet skiing and hanging out with friends rather than finishing your degree so that you can spend all your time with him. He got a little possessive there with that i think, which he might have realized too and called it off because it freaked him and you out and he knew that wouldn’t be fair.
Bad timing could be an explanation for it i suppose, though i think more accurately you are just at different places in your lives. He has his job, his friends, his city, his life sorted out pretty well. And while he wants you to fit into that- you are not there yet. You have your career and school goals that you are going for, your friends, your life.
I’m not saying that down the road it is impossible for you guys to be together unless you crush your own dreams and try to fit perfectly into his by any means (if that makes sense…i hope it does)
What i think is going to have to happen if you do want to be with him (as you say he is the perfect guy) is you are going to have to compromise. He will not get upset if you don’t call him every night. You will be sure to visit him on whichever days. He will not get frustrated about your schooling, and you will say i love you first sometimes. These compromises (not necessarily the ones you have to have by any means) will have to be something that you and him agree upon if you decide to get back together.
Distance apart can help you feel more comfortable in your own skin again, and solidify who you are so that you can more aptly be with someone else =]
good luck with everything, i wish you all the best!
