Urgent - guardianship/inpatient location

This is urgent - I am the parent of a young adult. Very ill. Currently in a facility but want to check out. I have said I will take guardianship or she much go inpatient.

Others with this experience? I don't want to say too much as she looks at these - but she has severe physical issues (AN) and is close to death.

Must locate an inpatient facility that she will accept that takes vegetarians

tobeatthebeach,

I recommend that you contact NEDA's helpline where they can get you all sorts of information regarding inpatient facilities in your area. Here is their info: Monday-Thursday from 9:00 am - 9:00 pm and Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm (EST) at 1-800-931-2237

I am sorry to hear that your daughter is struggling, and I wish you and her the best of luck during this trying time. I will be thinking of you both. Please continue to reach out to the forums for help/ advice in the future. Also, while helping your daughter is most likely your biggest priority at the moment, please don't forget that your health (mental, physical, emotional) is important too. You will be a better support system for your daughter if you are strong yourself :)

Best,
Hannah
