Help for Doug Babb

Doug has Parkinson's with Multiple System Atrophy. After being transferred from the hospital, to a nursing home (for a day, but they couldn't give him the care he needed)... he went back to the hospital...but they couldn't keep him indefinitely; so now he is back home. However, Doug can no longer walk and needs around the clock care. He is a "full assist" patient. We have Monday-Friday 9:30AM-10PM covered,  as well as Saturday and Sunday 9AM-1PM, then 6-10PM...However, That's a ten hour daytime weekend gap to fill, and DAILY 3rd shift where we have no help. It's $90 a day to cover 3rd shift alone. So we are trying to raise enough funds to get help to fill in the gaps. Hopefully in a few weeks we will have a better solution, but in the meantime we are paying cash out of pocket for the weekend gaps, and Kristian/Victoria have been handling 3rd shit to the point of utter exhaustion. We are also looking for volunteers to sit with Doug for any time possible. Even having someone any day from 10PM-12/1AM would be helpful, or early in the morning like 6AM-9:30AM. We desperately need help over here. Victoria herself now has 2 sprained wrists and a wide array of other physical issues. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you so much! Please contact Caitlin Jade Young who is coordinating volunteers, if you can come spend time with Doug. Please see updates...Doug can no longer teach at IUPUI online, and we don't know how we are going to pay the bills...Update***Doug has transitioned to heaven...he left no life insurance policy. We are still raising funds to cover burial costs and cover immediate bills for Victoria
