Re: Family is falling apart

Thanks to both for your replies. There is a caregiver coming in six days a week right now. I have looked into a memory care unit for my mom and am ready to place her there (I already put my own money down) should something happen to my dad. The wrench in this whole situation is that my dad is functioning enough to get by and call the shots when he is home but his visits to the hospital are more frequent and then everyone is left scrambling to pick up the mess he leaves behind. I just spoke to his nurse and told her that he is in no shape when they release him to take care of my mom, let alone himself. She said she will be getting a social worker involved before he would be released. I'm hoping we can make some progress this way.
