My father in law was very sick, last week in ICU for 8 days. Now he's home and we have been caring for him. His knees, ankles and joints hurt to the point where he can't even walk to the bathroom. He's only 68 years old. He's extremely overweight, has diabetes, heart disease and severe artritis.
Now, my problem is, he hasn't showered in over a week, still peeing in a bottle, can't prepare his own meals, etc. But, he thinks he can make it to a baseball game this weekend out of town! I'm thinking he's getting spoiled on us catering to him. He has no motivation to get himself better. He lives alone in a 2 story home w/ the shower and his bed upstairs. Of course, he can't make it upstairs on his own. And when the time comes for my husband to help him up, he says "No, it's too early to go to bed!" My husband works full time, has 3 kids and is getting really frustrated w/his father.
Any ideas on how we should handle him?
