I moved my father in with me recently and haven't been able to work. I feed and help him dress and bathe. He's old and he was a veteran.

Sounds like you have your hands full. How old is your father? Have you looked into seeing if his veteran's benefits would help. How long has he lived with you? Do you still have your job or did you have to quit? Are they any other family members who could or will help? How is your own health?
Two more questions. Do you have durable POA and medical POA. If not, you really need to get these soon in order to help your father.
