I need guidance in getting my dad into a nursing home. Where and how do I begin?
My dad and his companion have been living together for approx 30 years. He his 79 and she is 73. He needs assistance showering, dressing, eating, and walking. Her health is also declining. My dad does not have ANY assets. The house is hers. He is on Medicare and receives Social Security. I did try to have therapists go to the home but his companion is not in favor of letting strangers in her house. Since it is her home I feel I must comply with her request. How do I start the process of getting him into a nursing home?
