My dad has some health problems that now make it such that he cannot live alone. His social security a month is 1K and he only has medicare. We are applying for Medicaid, and if approved it will allow me to place him in a long term care facility, but I hate to do that do him. He is not he kind of person that will fair at well there, sharing a room with someone, feeling like he has been put out to pasture. He is very coginitive at times, but needs alot of care that I feel like only a love one can give. I am the only family he really has that will take care of him and his cancer is not severe yet, but has been getting worse the last 6 months and I feel like his colon may be removed in its entirety by the end of the year. He currently rents a house very cheap that he feels at home in and peaceful about. Here is my question. I could quit my job and with my savings and his social security, I could live with him for probably 2 maybe 3 years, and take care of him. Which might be the last two years of his life. This would give him a good quality of life here at the end and I love my dad so much that I would want him to feel so loved by his child in his last years. His daily needs include supervision, helping him go to the bathroom, feeding him, etc. If I had to leave for a bit during the day, a friend could sit with him while I was gone. My heart is breaking about putting in the care of some facility that medicaid will pay for. He has had a life of loss and lonlieness and I don't want him to have that during his final time. I am hoping that others in similiar situations will respond with advice as I am just trying to talk this thing out and leave it at God's feet for His will.
