Danny, see if your father-in-law can qualify for Medicaid [this is different from Medicare].

Medicaid is use to help elders who cannot afford to pay for a nursing home. Call your State Medicaid office and see what Dad needs to do and what programs are available [each State Medicaid is different].

Start going on tours of nearby facilities. Usually they include a free lunch. They will also help sort out the financial end .
