Hi. What a way to start retirements.
Does the hospital/clinic where your dad was treated have a social worker or office that can direct them to one? One or two meetings (in home or not) may be all they need to sort out options beyond how things are now, depending on their resources. Hiring a cleaner, meals-on-wheels, organized adult activities (if dad can’t drive)so mom can have some free time… These helps, even if only used a few months, can help them get into a better routine and adjust to the “new normal” and rise above it.
