    I have just found out that my dad will need more of my help because of his declining health.  Where do I start?  What our my options for getting him the care he needs?


    You will need to look at the time and resources available to you and accurately assess what your dad’s declining health is all about.  I went with him to his doctor and found out a lot of things dad had not told me.  i think he was hiding things because he was afraid I’d “take over” his life.  But he really did need a bunch of help.

    Once you know your resources, money and time and his needs this will help you decide many things with him, including: whether to take him into your home, hire a live in caretaker, or place him in an assisted living facility or nursing home.
