Jeff, We all know the difficulty of dealing with aging parents and the frustration and stress it brings. So feel free to come here and vent it will make you feel better and maybe ease that pressure for at least a little bit. I hope all goes well for you and your family and I will keep you in our thoughts.

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. We got Dad moved from the hospital to a care center physical rehab wing today. He was much better today mentally than previous days but still has bouts of confusion from the withdrawal symptoms. Mom has had a rough few days but we've tried to keep close tabs on her with neighbors and cousins in the area. We plan to spend most of the weekend visiting them and trying to close up some loose ends.
There is still a place on hold for Mom to be for a couple months. Their house needs a couple of repair jobs and we're hoping we have her convinced that she needs to be out of the house for a few days while this is done. If this way doesn't work I fear what we'll have to do to get her out of there for awhile. Still waiting to talk with Dad about how that might work. The goal in my mind still is to get him through rehab and treatment and bring them home together. I'm not sure how realistic that is but I'm holding out hope.

Got Mom moved into assisted living today - hopefully temporary. It was not a fun task. She was pretty much on board until the construction crew started up across the hall. We ended up moving her to another apartment right after we got her settled in. Wasn't a pleasant experience. Dad's beginning to walk around a bit and starting to feel more like he should be going home. He's not making things any easier. He'll need to stay until he can do everything by himself but doesn't hasn't come to that realization yet - probably won't ever. Then comes the task of getting him to agree to go into treatment after he has finished physical rehab. I'm happy that they are both in a safe place right now but nervous that they will find their way home somehow before it's time.
Neighbors and cousins are taking care of cat and mail chores. If we didn't have them I would be completely lost. Thank God there's a little support around them. Now to get the house cleaned up a bit, the roof fixed, and the mold-laden entry way repaired. I'm not sure if being 2 hours away right now is a good thing or not. It's a pain to go back and forth but it's nice to get a bit away from it all.
Thanks again for a listening ear.
