Thanks for all the helpful info Lainy. This is just the beginning for us. I can see it progressing and it will be an up hill battle all the way.
Marion, we had to really push to get them to do a 28 day trial period. We are hoping that if they last the 28 days they will like it and stay. We started by asking nicely, then got mad and said they had to atleast give this a try. We tried to reason with them, resorted to begging, pleading and even some tears and then had to holler a little. Tough love at it's best. If my dad refuses to stay, I think mom will end up in more of a nursing care facility. At one point I told my dad that I wouldn't mind living there and he said "then you go!" At this point I think mom realizes she needs to be there. She has Parkinsons among other things and my dad is not capable of taking care of her at home, but he is really giving her a hard time. He does not want to be there, but if mom stays, he is not capable of being home alone either. So we are taking it one day at a time and dealing with a different situation every day.
Wish us luck, we will need it and thoughts and prayers couldn't hurt either.
Have a good evening ladies.
Love & Hugs,
"One Day At A Time"
