Care For My Mom

I’m never one to ask for help but my Dad and I are so helpless at this point and we really don’t know what else to do. My beautiful mother Tracy Pieper was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 3 years at the age of 54. She is now 57, and being discharged. No aftercare homes that would provide the 24 hour care that she needs until she passes are willing to take her due to her young age and possibility of living past the life cap that has been placed on her. My father and I are now being force by the hospital to bring my mom home, with out any care provided by a health care specialist. We both work full time and are not prepared to have to take the time off from work, as well as provide the true care that she needs and deserves. This has all happened with in the past three days, and my dad and I are really struggling to figure out the best options for my mom. Any sort of donation will be used for medical bills, as well as trying to find someone to provide her with the 24 hour care that she needs to be comfortable with in her last couple of months, as well as funeral and memorial costs. I appreciate everything and am sending thanks to everyone in advance. I will try my best to keep everyone updated. Thank you.
