My brother had his first stroke 8 yrs ago, second one last July and we believe he's had a third small one just before christmas last year. He isn't bathing, he is going to the bathroom on himself, sometimes it seems like he either doesn't know or doesn't care, we've discovered his utilities have been turned off, he's behind in his rent as well and has lost his job. His speech has come back, and he's walking well for the most part. (does lose balance from time to time) He is also diabetic, he was on shots but then was moved to taking pills. All he is taking as medication is baby asprin, nothing for the stroke, or diabetes.
What do we do? We've gotten him out of his home and into a family member's but it is not a forever solution. He isnt going to the doctor's as much as we think he should, we think there's more wrong than what he's telling us. How do we convince him to give up his place and get help, assisted living or something. What's the next step?
