I'm sorry about your son and the stress you have to go through. He really needs 24 hr care. That's hard for one or two people to handle. You may have to hire someone to help you like we did. Even if it's only for twice a week you can rest and have some time for yourself. Karen comes from 12 PM to 4 PM. Donna comes every other week for 6 hrs.
Mike may qualify for Hospice care. It's free, I think paid for by Medicare. His medications would be free. They would bathe him and do some of the things you may feel difficult or uncomfortable to do. He would have a Social worker and RN. You need more help. It's out there....
