Can you please tell me what to do with my father? My mother and he are divorced, she was taking care of him, but now she has to come and live with me. He is in his home and he cannot take care of himself at all. There is no one who can go and take care of him. Who do I contact to put him in a nursing home. Do I take him to a hospital and leave him there? I have no clue as you can see with what to do with him.

You'd have to find a nursing home with openings. Is he a veteran. He may qualify for a veteran's home. Anyway, you have to find a home with an opening and do the paperwork. If he has few assets, he maybe should be on Medicaid, if he isn't already.

You can call his county Social Services adult care for guidance.
