Does anyone have any experience with becoming a guardian for their parent(s)? I know it is a last resort & not a pleasant experience for anyone involved. I'm not sure that there will be any other options for me, though. We don't have a diagnosis yet, but it's pretty obvious that my dad has dementia. He is losing weight & basically can't remember anything. He has finally agreed, after months of refusing, to get the testing for a diagnosis. He lives alone but near my sister. He's in a rural area & has no neighbors who can check on him. He also has a mobility issue with his leg. We are concerned about him living alone in an isolated area. He refuses to consider assisted living or even having someone come to his house to help him. My sister & I don't want to put him or ourselves through the guardianship process, but we are running out of options to make sure he's safe.
