In the 20+ years I have known him, he has gone through numerous serious health problems that would kill a lesser man. He must have a 24/7 caretaker living with him. The man( an angel)I found was there to help care for my mother in her final months. He stayed on to care for JP as he cannot care for himself. JP'S wish and my promise to him and my mother was to be in his home of 56 years when his time came.
He suffers from Alzheimer's and Dementia. He is unable to walk much less cook or clean for himself.. I truly did not think he would still be around at this point.
Over the last 4 years he has gone through all his savings and cash as well as ALL of the cash and savings left behind by my mother. There are no stocks, bonds or the like to cash in. Between the two of them they had 175K in savings. As of a few months ago, its all gone JP has $1800 a month from pension and Social Security income. The total monthly care and expenses run approximately $5800. I don't care about, nor do I need an inheritance from my mother. That’s gone. I am in need of help to pay $4000 per month in expenses exceeding his income. The funding goal is to offset the next 8 months of his care. I feel uncomfortable posting this and asking for help. I have gone through over $20k personally to this point after paying the employment taxes for last year. I too have a family to take care of. The help I'm asking for is solely to care for the man that can't care for himself. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
