My dad lives in a different state, and has refused past offers to move to where any of us kids live. He is now progressively declining and has decided to move in with a neighbor who I guess is like a son to him, so he can stay in the same area. my problem is that this new "son" has control of the phone. and i am having difficulty reaching my dad to talk to him/check on him. my dad is still coherent and i have discussed this with him, and he says he will call but of course forgets. There are other "control" issues going on, but for now that is the main problem. anyone come up with something like this?
