My Dad is having trouble cooking and cleaning his house due to bad knees. He keeps his finances to himself. My sister wants to hire a maid service for him but we have limited funds and don't want to pay for the service if he can afford to pay for it himself. He still drives but can not walk or stand without support. He has resorted to cooking high salt, high fat TV dinners because he can not stand in front of the stove. I have been told that since he is not confined to home, the usual medicare, and veterans services won't pay for any home services. Any suggestions on how to help him out? He and we want him to stay independent as long as possible.
