My Dad's Dr. ordered physical therapy for him due to his fall risk. The therapist does a great job of showing the exercises, but after he leaves, Dad won't do anything. He "knows" he won't be walking for much longer without enough muscle tone and he says he is fine with that. At the same time, he says he can stay in his home as long as he wishes. I am responsible for his care (advanced directive) and this just isn't the case. If he can't walk, he can't stay in his home. His wife is in her mid 80s too and cannot take care of him. I have sacrificed enough in my personal life and I cannot do more. I don't know how to explain this to him in a way he understands. He continues to say he is fine. He can't remember 5 minutes at a time! Sigh . . .
