My 89 year old father was admitted into nursing home 4 months ago from falling and breaking his left arm, which is better. He is a diabetic with problems off and on with sugar dropping to 35 or lower, on oxygen and take breathing treatments. My 85 year old mother is still living and drives 60 miles round trip to see him daily, they have 5 siblings. Siblings all live in town of nursing home where my father is. Problem is he wants to go home so bad and my mother seems to be about to give in. She knows she can no longer take care of him, couple of weeks he will be approved for Medicaid and they are out no cost for the facility. It saddens us every-time we see him because he is showing signs of being depressed and have broke into tears because he wants to go home. Mom wants him home and then not, she knows she can no longer take care of him. We are afraid she may get him home and then this will cause more caring down the road than what was being done before. Question is how to get father to adjust to the home and be happy? Mother is not in good physical health, forgetful at times and how to persuade her in not making the mistake of removing him from the home since all paperwork has been paid for to put him on Medicaid. I would say they are both in there right minds, but can be a little forgetful at times, but just not physically able to take care of each other and that it will put a much needed burden on siblings since they live out of town. Don't get me wrong, they have been taken care of with dr. appts, shopping, etc. But with their health and future that mother will not be able to drive to town is what will make it more of a hardship..
