Improving Kevin's living situation

Hello everyone, my name is Ry Kelly and I am starting this campaign for my father Kevin. 
 Kevin Kelly was always a kind soul who was giving , loving and very out going.  He was always smiling and making people smile. For four years now he has had a neurological disorder that the doctors only know to call "primary progressive aphasia" it has been a slow progressing problem that started with speach and now, while he does still smile, is not able to do too much for himself. 
   My brother and I have been caring for him in a great little mobile home park in Boulder creek. His home is a 1968 18 ft Terry that I already had and renovated a couple years back for him. While this has been working great and he really enjoyed it at first the space is just to tight. It has gotten to the point about 9 months ago that he can just no longer be alone and has been rough in the small space. 
  My father has always been pretty physically able to get around, however after our very recent 6 day stay in the hospital for pneumonia some further progression has arose.  He is having issues now that really require even more care than we have been providing so far. Hospice of Santa Cruz is involved and with nurses and doctors coming by and the addition of care providers I really really need a larger space for him! While I have been saving what I can for a while I have been shopping around and it's just not enough to get something that will provide the setup we need to make this work...
  We are getting the larger space at park beginning of the month and I have been a little frantic trying to figure all this out. This came to me and seemed worth a try. Anybody who knew him, friends and family we would very much appreciate anyway you can help us in this rough time. 
 Overall I just want to be able to make my dad as comfortable as I can for as long as I can! Thank you!
