HELP... I want to help.. but feel helpless.
My father is currently lives in an assisted living facility. I live 2hours away and get up to visit him every couple of weeks and pay his bills. My ex-husband participates in his care by taking him to doctors appointments and various other chores. I appreciate his help and feel he is being fair. We are facing the problem with my father that he is becoming more and more afflicted with dementia. He is in the hospital this week for pneumonia and an infection in his legs. Infections often lead to confusion in his case. He is now losing his bills and becomes argumentive at times. The facility has offered to hold or forward his bills to me for payment, but I do not have that authority on his account and don't believe he will allow it. What are my options. He is not paying his facility bill timely either. He has some animosity with the administrator over the billing cycle.
