The caregiver has filed these charges with the state never once saying anything to my mom or myself. The first we had learned anything regarding this matter was when the officer showed up at our door serving my mom papers telling her that my father was expected to appear before the judge to answer this charge of battery.
To our knowledge, this is the first and only time we have ever heard of this happening. My dad has a severe hereditary heart disease, he has suffered five major heart attacks, he has numerous stents in his heart and Drs say that he is only working with about 15% of his heart. Why and how he is still with us is nothing short of a miracle from God. He has suffered 3 major strokes, he is starting to show definite signs of dementia but has never been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He also suffers from hearing loss. He is unable to care for himself, he needs help with bathing, dressing himself, preparing his meals. He is unable to get around without the help of his walker or wheelchair. It is very difficult for my dad to verbally communicate since his strokes. He understands what is being said but has difficulties coming up with the correct words to communicate back to others. His memory seems to be getting worse as time goes on.
I find it very difficult that my father has intentionally committed this crime he is being accused of.
Is there anyone out there who has also had to deal with this type if situation? Is there any suggestions that can help go forward with this crisis that has come up??? Please any and all help is definitely welcomed .
