My dad is bedridden, full care, but has retained his mental faculties. Mom had a stroke 6 weeks ago and is now home. She is physically strong but confused about everything. (cannot prepare food, use a phone, etc) I lived there for 6 weeks, and have arranged care 4 days a week during the day and now have moved back to my home and returned to work.
They really are not safe and need 24-hour care. They have the finances to pay for in home care, but dad does not want to pay. They have refused POA, and he insists they are fine alone. We have been arguing about this daily for 4 weeks and he is very stubborn. I feel guilty leaving, but I should not have to give up my life and job, when they are able to pay for care. Is there a way to force them to pay for in home care? They do not qualify for Medi-Cal.
