Hi so I'm new to this type of thing and I've never really talked to anyone about this outside of family before and when I try and bring it up no one likes to stay on the subject. I'm starting my freshman year in college and my aunt and I were the main caretakers of my father while I was home but now I've left and she has random military events she has to go too so I'm constantly worrying about wether or not he will be okay. We have a caretaker come during the day to watch him but the past two neglected their jobs and would fall asleep during it or leave early so I'm seeing wether or not a place to care for him 24/7 would be a good idea or not. He needs supervision while he eats because he'll choke fairly often if the foods not prepared right and he will lock up and fall quite frequently. I'm honestly just scared and trying to find others who understand this as no one at school that i know does. I apologize if what I wrote is confusing at all, all of its just really getting to me right now and I don't know what to do
