My mother put my father in a private home assisted living situation that has changed him from a man who constantly smiled, joked around and sang songs throughout the day to a man who now lies in a bed staring at the ceiling who breathes through his mouth that is always gaping open. They don't put his dentures in because they are loose and has formed bedsores in just over a week. He seems sedated and tries to talk but can't form words anymore. He doesn't get any physical excercise (which was getting increasingly difficult at home with us, which is why my elderly mother couldn't take care of him). I am on disability and couldn't help her much at home any more and all of the Assisted Living facilities were full so private home care was our only option. The change in him is so drastic that I'm afraid my father (who it seemed had years left to live with us happily) is going to be dead soon. I can't afford to support him elsewhere on my disability income and the people caring for him are suggesting he go to a hospice. My father's dementia has not progressed to the point where he isn't sure what is going on around him yet and he still has memories from childhood, his career (including the years he worked) and from childhood. Please help me save my father. My mother has turned a blind eye to this situation (as well as my oldest brother who lives with us only because of my father's health) and she absolutely won't consider in-home health care. Neither Medicare nor GEHA offer my father financial help and I have no other relatives to help me. Please, what can I do to save this beautiful, previously happy generous man?
