I agree with Cathy’s suggestions below. I think the most helpful first step would be talking to your local AAA. Their information & referral specialists can talk you through your specific situation and provide resources. Depending on your father’s income, he may benefit from a Medicaid waiver program like Community Care Services Program. The AAA folks would walk you through that determination. Wishing you and your family the best, Jocelyn
