My brother is the oldest of four children at 59 years old. He injured his back I don't know how many years ago and never had it checked out, and is now having severe pain, legs going out from under him and making him fall. Six months ago he had scheduled the surgery to fix his back but then called and cancelled the surgery. Our youngest sister was there with him to help him after the surgery, and he told her that his wife (who had just had a stroke and wasn't talking yet) cancelled the surgery. I know he has a couple other physical issues as well, Hyperthyroid, and Cholesterol are two that I know for sure.
We are also seriously concerned about his mental health as well. He is very paranoid, saying things like a person walking down the street was the one that caused the fire in his truck (it was electrical), or that someone else was trying to break into his house. At one point he accused his wife of poisoning the morning coffee, trying to kill him, so after she poured her own cup, he would make a new pot so he knew that it had not been tampered with.
My main question is with us (his three sisters) in Ohio and he in Indiana is there anything we can do to make him get help for himself, or be able to put him in a nursing home either there in Indiana or here in Ohio?
