Ok...so my father is a registered sex offender. He served 5 years in prison. During his stay, he was beaten to within an inch of his life. He lost brain fluid and has suffered permanent terrible brain damage to where he has the mental capacity of a 5 yr old. My Mom suffers from great terrible depression. She told me on Saturday that if anything should happen to her, that I can't just leave my Dad to rot in the house they are living in. My sister will not help. So....here's the thing. Nursing homes won't take my dad. And.....he can't be admitted into a mental health facility as he doesnt have a mental health issue, he has a physical health issue. so when the day comes, and if my Mom dies before my Dad does, I will be the one to get stuck taking care of him for the rest of his life. The only possible bright spot in all of this, is that IF he can be diagnosed with a mental health issue, then he could be committed. My Mom's phsychiatrist has told her, that if it comes to that, he will diagnos my father with a mental health issue. Still...who knows...and.....this whole thing really stresses me, as I now wonder about my future afterall.
