My Mom has Parkinson's and I am worried for her
hi, so my mom has been diagnosed with Parkinson's about a year and a half ago and its progressed fairly fast. i am so worried for her and my dad. You see they live in NM and I am in Utah trying to care for my own family. I have to remain here and am trying to rebuild my marriage and keep my family together. But at the same time my parents are alone in a small town in NM with no one available to family no loved one. My dad right now cares for my mom completely but he is getting older everyday at 78 i dont know how much longer he can take care of my Mom. If something happnend to my dad my mom would be helpless. What can my parents do? what can i do being so far away? They are both retired and have very little income other than SS, and barely any savings at all in none. I worry so much and dont know what to do. Unfortuatly i am here in Utah trying to save my marriage so asking my wife and kids to move is out of the question right now. I feel so helpless, and sick worrying about my Mom and Dad. What do you all suggest we can do? Are they places where low income assistance is provided, or free assisted living is provided? Please help i am so scared for the future. please..
