In-Home Nursing Care for Dad

Dear Friends, Family, Associates, Community, & Strangers:

Our goal is to keep dad at home and as comfortable as possible.... However, his living facility will not allow him to return when he's discharged from the hospital, because they cannot provide the level of care he now needs. Our plan is to have him stay with us, happy and healthy, when we close on our new house... We however have now exhausted all savings and government help, and cannot receive any assistance/programs for about the next 5 weeks, once I am a resident of Indiana again.

Long story short, we need around the clock in-home nursing care for the next 5 weeks, paid out of pocket.
I have tried to manage and make the situation work on my own, but at this point I can either ask for help from anyone who can offer it, or, place dad in a state-run nursing home (which I refuse to do; we all know how those worked out before.)

My dad, Carl LaVon, has taken care of me for about 75% of my life, and has shaped and molded all of the good things about me... We've been a 2-person dream team my whole life... It is now my time to return the favor,  but, even hospital parking is becoming a financial struggle as of late. 

I understand if you can only afford to share this post, and that will be enough if you can.

Thank you so much in advance,
-The LaVons
