My request is for funds so that I may be able to hire a full time nurse for home care, including hospice care.I am totally willing to assist with dads home care. This is a job for at least a team of two. I will not be able to care for his needs by myself, nor do I think a nurse or a skilled professional should either. Unfortunately, Medicare will only pay for a person who might improve in a medical situation for a time of twenty days in a medical facility.
My dad has stage 4 metastatic pancreatic cancer, which has already spread to the liver and stomach lining.
He has been diagnosed with Non rheumatic aortic valve stenosis also. All of this is preciptent to him fainting and crashing to his head.
Due to the fall he has now lost partial mobility.
My dad has lived in Lewisburg, TN for 20 years. He makes everyone he comes into contact with, his friend! Always a happy man and so caring and thoughtful of everyone around him. He was an important part of his community belonging to his church and the Elks Club and always giving example as to how to be a good person. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. Everyone gave him access to their land to hunt on. He taught men and boys to goose hunt in an area that was not popular for this sport. He showed strangers and friends where and how to fish for walleye on Normandy Lake. He and my mother camped at this lake for many years. It was their home away from home. My mother had Alzheimer's for approximately 8 years. He gave up all these activities and dedicated himself totally to care for her and her needs until the very end of her life.
I would appreciate any donation and prayers for this man,my dad Joe, so that he can perish with dignity and total comfort and love in his own home.
I thank you ahead of time with my whole heart.
