John's sister is moving their father to a nursing home. His mental health has been deteriorating very rapidly over the last few months. On Tuesday a social worker from the Council on Aging visited him & called Christine to tell her that Serge is a danger to himself & needs to be placed in 24-hr care now.
Christine is completely stressed. She has been moving toward doing this for a few weeks but was looking at assisted living. The social worker told her that would be a tremendous mistake.
Christine is dealing with 2 children under the age of 10, her father, & her in-laws who are in much the same condition. I feel sorry for her.
We have so much to do to get this done. Serge has a greyhound that is aging as well. He adopted Max a few years ago. Serge has said that Max has kidney trouble but we don't know for sure if it's kidney trouble or that he isn't allowed to get out & pee often enough. My bet is the latter--Serge lives in an apartment & doesn't walk the dog enough. We're going to need to place the dog ASAP.
I'm going to be a complete non-help with my wonky arm. I don't even want to be responsible for watching the kids while John & Christine run around. If something should happen to them, I'd be at a complete loss.
