We've been divorced since the 70s, but our children still care about him, especially eldest daughter.
He re-married to someone who is as unstable as he is, but she does look after him. He's in a bad way physically, spending many years on lithium and is now very frail, rarely gets out of bed, toilet accidents etc. He's 80.
Daughter visits regularly, not always welcomed by the wife. He does have a carer from the council who comes in daily.
Sounds to me as if he should be in a care home, it's too much for H. to cope with. But she won't accept help or advice.
Our 2 sons live abroad.
Any ideas? Should he have a social worker?
I'm worried on behalf of our daughter who lives 200 miles away, works full time but visits when she can.
