Cathy, sorry your Dad is having such a difficult time. Have you thought about hiring additional help perhaps home health workers? My MIL recently hired someone before my FIL had to go to the hospital and then a nursing home. This person was not a nurse more like a nurses aid. She came in daily from 8:00 - 5:00 (something like that) five days a week. It really, really helped my MIL. I think it cost her around $300 a week. I know this is expensive long term; however, for short term it would be immeasurable help. Re your Dad's stupid chair. My FIL had one like that; however, he actually fell over in it and we rented a lift chair. It really helped him get in and out and helped others to help him get into it. I think Medicare will help fund the chair. Not sure if somehow you can convince Medicare to help with the nursing care. Maybe your doctor can think of a creative way to help you there. Best wishes and lots of hugs, prayers, and thoughts are with you. I know how hard it is to watch your Dad go through this most difficult time. Hang in there. Eve
