My mom is going through the same thing, and I'm not sure she's going to pull out. She's 86 with dementia. Dad "covered" for her pretty well until his recent stroke and our loss of him this past Christmas. I visit weekly with our dog. Just a thought: if you have a pet or have access to one, this is the most joy I see her experience-- having an animal around. Maybe your dad would benefit. Or even if he could take care of a small pet on his own. Not sure if it would work in his circumstances, but old folks do seem to get some comfort from animals.

God bless -- others are going through similar trials! :(
