Thank you Judy. We tried the nursing home with dad. My mom placed him in one and he did not do well. He became so depressed that he wanted to died. They put him on antidepressants but he still did not do well. He lost a ton of weight...like 17 pounds one month, 14 the next, etc. He was in there from mid September to January 31. The social worker there asked my mom to take him back home for his own welfare but she refused. My brother could not take him. I had to move to a bigger place in order to take him, so that was the reason for the delay. I know he may have to go to one at some point, but I also know what will happen if he does. I'll hang on as long as I can. This will be over and I'll have a life again some day. I'll get through it.
