Some of us work full time and some of us live between 1 and one half hours away. They say that we are abandoning him and that they cannot leave him alone at the nursing home. We come as often as we can. Is there any need to have someone there for the 5 to 6 hours they are there and then stay maybe another 2 each day? This is causing so much anger within the family at a time when stress for all is abundant.
