I Need to Find a Rest Home for My Step Father

by Roxanne
(Glendale, Arizona )

My name is Roxanne and I have been taking care of my step father and I just can't do it anymore.


I work and have two small children and I have to take care of him.it is really hard on me to take care of him also me being a female.

He's always falling and I can't pick him up, I try to get him to shower and he won't. He can barely walk and when he does he goes outside in his boxers and urinates in the front yard with kids and family's walking by.

He has severe mood swings he has other biological children who do not want to step up to the plate and help. I have tried talking to him and talking to him but it is like dealing with a child please help me.
