Thank you all for your responses!! I'm going to find an AlZheimers support group, because just reading your responses helps! I can imagine actually having live conversations with people who truly empathize being of great help. My siblings and I do have medical and financial power of attorney, but I did not even think about carrying a copy of DNR around with us, so will get on that. I'm still stuck on how to get Dad some help, and he does SAY that he knows this is hard on him, but boy! The determination that man has. But he's also insulin dependent and extremely proud. He says he's got a person in line to help him at home, so I'm giving him a week to prove it to me, then I'll just have to take care of it. Mom is now 5 years into the Disease, and it's remarkable she's as well off as she is, but this can't last much longer(?) thank you ALL for ur advice, and I will email that specialist on the sighing, which may be pain. Thank you so much!!
