My dad is only 64 but has a variety of health problems. The worst is spinal stenosis which has been causing him to slowly become paralyzed from the waist down. There is no treatment other than in home physical therapy which he refuses to participate in. He lives alone and has a caregiver that comes each weekday for a couple of hours to assist him with meals, errands, bathroom visits, sponge baths, etc. I took care of these things for him for about 1.5 years before I had to get the caregiver due to his constant temper with me. I am his only child, he has no other family or friends around, and he has always been a self imposed hermit. He is very noncompliant with his doctors' advice other than his meds. He has been getting much worse and really needs to be in assisted living but refuses it. Even though I do not have children, his coming to live with me would strain my marriage probably to the point of collapse due to his demanding and belligerent attitude. I feel lost.
