I think they should give that old man a break for crying out loud.

Awe, all the old people I know never want to be in a nursing home and would much rather be cared for by a loved one at home. That old man sounds like he loves his wife enough to do anything for her and I think it is rediculous that a husband be charged with kindnap of his wife unless he forced her to leave.

I think this old man deserves a break after all, he was just trying to be with the woman he loves

I'm glad you all feel that way. ME TOO! As a matter of fact, I think its romantic! He apparently is able to take care of her since she's been with him for over a year now away from the nursing home.

I just asked DH if he would do that for me, and here's what he said:

"Not only would I spring you. I'd take you to Europe so they couldn't find us! Damm the man who would keep me from my wife!"


See why I love him?

I can see my Pops doing that. He's been taking care of Mom, since her stroke 6 years ago. Two years ago, after minor surgery, the hospital social worker and aftercare nurse wanted to send Mom to a nursing home and we ALL threw a fit. If not for Pops, I don't believe that Mom would have lasted this long.

I do. He's a keeper for sure. Thank goodness he has his military training for these A-Team style plans.

There is no way I will ever put my grandfather in a home!
I will work two jobs and hire him an at home nurse if I had to.
Now my mother on the otherhand...she's 42...I tried all the time to get her into a home before she married a year ago, she wouldnt budge now my stepdad is there to keep her company and watch HGTV with her lol!

Im glad he busted her outta that joint!
wouldnt you rather spend your last days/months/years with your loved ones!

I know... I can just imagine his thought process. I'm sure it involves some sort of night vision goggles. He's always wanted those.

Oh that is so awful! How can you go from being someone's lifetime companion to being told you no longer have the right to care for them and be forced to just sit there while that person suffers and is so unhappy? It seems as if neither of their rights as human beings were considered here. They claimed abuse because she hurt a finger? I'd like to hear the whole story on that one.

If that were my grandparents....I'd be taking some major action. It's rediculous! The man is 84 years old for cryin out loud! My Grandfather spends a lot of time caring for my Grandmohter since her stroke and guess what, yes she's gotten hurt a few times because stuff happens! Nothing major, but for cryin out loud, was he supposed to pad the walls and remove anything and everything that could even possibly cause injury to her???....it just doesn't make sense! No way in hell will someone take my husband from me and make me watch him suffer like that. No way in hell!

How sad! This just breaks my heart
How is it that some one that doesn't even know the family can decide what is best for some one? I hope that some thing like that happens to him (the so called gardian of this poor lady) I hope they can get this resolved and find a better solution for her and him, before it is too late.

Ok that makes no sence. He wanted to get his wife out of a place she hated. He was with in his right as a husband.

I would agree with all of you, but the abuse charge is worrisome. Lord knows 80 year old men are capable of abusing their spouses. I'll just withhold judgement until I know the circumstances of the abuse allegation.

I wasn't sure if the FL authorities were investigating the abuse alleged in Michigan in Oct,'05, or if the abuse allegations were new ones in FL.
It is unusual for the spouse to lose his conservatorship over her, and since there are grandchildren, that none of the other family members were chosen. Instead, she was given a formal guardian. To do that, there would have been conservatorship hearings, and the husband would have been able to petition the court to be selected; in California, at least, the couple would have been represented by counsel at no cost to them.
