About this Care Recipient

My father is 84 and has difficulty getting around because he loses his breath. His lungs are weak from his heart failure and he is often tired, unstable, and dehydrated. He has a sound mind, and very current with local and national events. We lost my Mom from dementia a little over a year ago. They had been married 60 years. He was her primary caregiver. He misses her terribly, and is very lonely. He had 4 children. I am the oldest, a girl, and he had 3 sons, all of whom have passed - one at 28 of AIDS, one at 36 on 9/11, and one at 58 of ALS. I come down to FL from NJ as often as I can, and stay with him - cook for him and keep him company.
