My husband is currently stationed at FT. Carson and we recently found out my mom is very sick. Her doctor has asked if I could home when the time comes so that she can receive in home hospice care, there needs to be an adult present but my dad works all day and my sister isn't mentally capable. My dh spoke to his Sgt., whom said that he could take family tragedy leave or whatever and just to talk to him when the time comes but I'm trying to be prepared on this. Can anyone tell me anything about time off for family tragedy? They're saying it will be at least a few months, before she needs it but I'm wondering will he be allowed anytime to help or does it only apply if the worst happens? He can't really take his leave time because we don't know when it will get that bad, I just don't know how it works, how much time he gets, or what qualifies, like will it be a problem that it is my mom, his mil even if they're close? Like I said, I'm just trying to prepare so that we can focus on my mom instead of all the stress of getting home and all, plus It's not immediate or scheduled, were not sure how long we have to think.
