Re: What to do with mom

Hi Maryann,

It sounds like you have been doing all the necessary research as to what to do if you need to step in. Your dad seems pretty head-strong (like mine). Maybe all you can do is wait,...

Re: Father angry

Hi Mary Ann,

Re: Father angry

Thanks so much Sally.

Dad is highly frustrated and probably depressed, but I am too. I agree there is no need for verbal abuse. It's hard to take a stand because of my own guilt for him...

Re: Father won't allow help

Thanks for your help. I would love to do a trial run, but I haven't gotten him to do it. I like the idea of making sure I get the best person to help if I ever get him to relent. I wouldn't want...

Re: Father won't allow help
