      Check with the social worker at the hospital, any senior services in your county or city, check with your local center on ageing. They will be your best resource to find out what services you can get.

      86 years old is a huge achievement in itself. I have a neighbor who is in his 90's, fought in WWII, and still rides a motorcycle. How wild is that? My heart goes out to you for what your family's going through. The advice you received on contacting a social worker or senior services is good. I've never looked into it, but how about asking this eldercare http://www.eldercare.gov/Eldercare.NET/Public/Index.aspx whether they are aware of any resources.

      Medicare covers home health services 100% if the patient is homebound, has a referral from a physician. Call them for assistance.
