My Father is in declining health. He has had a live-in care caregiver since April 2014, and after several TIA's and emergency gallbladder surgery, we found that it would be in the best interest to place him in a memory care facility.
He can no longer speak or control body functions; he can no longer perform any tasks, he needs to be fed. He has a private caregiver at the memory care facility at present.
Our Mom is in an assisted living facility. Expenses are piling and adding up.
We want to ensure that they are both being cared for and are comfortable, but don't know whether to spend $1,300+ on a custom wheelchair, that he ma not live to see. However, if we new he would live to use it, we wouldn't hesitate to purchase it.
Anyone have experience, or a similar situation?
