Have asked regarding my folks before. Elderly, far away from the children, and alcoholics. Spoke with them this afternoon. Mom seemed good and was lucid. Dad, not so much. Difficulty holding a conversation with him. Mom informs me that they're going to go and check out yet another assisted living facility "soon". States that the house is in a shambles, she can't care for him, herself and the house, too. I'm afraid for them. I think her statements about going to check out facilities is a ruse.
