My Mother and father are struggling big time. My father is suffering from the end stages of Parkinsons. Despite DBS surgery he is nonambulatory and unable to transfer himself. He has really become complete care. Unfortunatley they live about 1 hour from my brothers and I and we are unable to help on a regular basis. She has home care in the morning but is left to put him to bed and commode ect. by herself. She is starting to voice here inability to do it anymore.I was hoping that someone may have been in this situation before and how they have delt with this, esp. the money it cost to place someone in a long term care facility. He did have 90 days of Medicare but they have been used up after some surgery in Dec. We are in Massachusetts and I do not know if the laws are state to state or what. HELP! Has anybody been in this same spot???
