Dad A.G. is suffering from cognitive issues that came about unexpectedly after a serious battle with sepsis and UTI. The diagnosis is beginning stages of dementia, which is now presenting as possibly further along that we thought. Progression is faster than anticipated and we have a lot of expenses and new decisions which need to be made. Living out of state, we need to get to him right away. Yet our financial ability to do so is not where it needs to be. These expenses include travel & legal expenses, items not covered by his insurance, and miscellaneous - all to help get him settled in his new living arrangements as well as securing his belongings. We are looking at things he will need to get settled into his new life, including clothing. We have already been informed the government will be taking all his money and assets to cover the cost of daily care and roof over his head. He was not a wealthy man.

In his younger days, Dad was a simple man who loved the outdoors, was an excellent carpenter, auto mechanic, and a motorcycle enthusiast. He was a lover of music and WOW! He even attended WOODSTOCK! A real renaissance man whose memories are fading.

Any amount you are able to give at this time would be much appreciated since we have to move quickly to make things happen and so we may respond quickly to his needs. Thank you and many blessings!

Latest Update

As each day passes, we find more and more which will not be covered for him and how little Al has left of a lifetime of saving and property ownership. We are not financially prepared to cover all of this sudden expense. If there is anything you can do to contribute or to share for helping us take care of Al's car, home, etc., we would be very grateful. Thank you. Kindly, Judith G

I should have started with this part of our story, the heart strings part. But we just wanted to get the information out there right away. Jim was estranged from his dad for a long time. Life just does that to people sometimes. We all may find there is one person or another in our lives, a loved one, that we just fall away from for various reasons. A couple years ago, a random call came in from Uncle Bob and Joanne - Dad Al's brother and SIL. And BAM! Jim and Al were reconnected. Since then, they have had such fun talking on the phone - working through misunderstandings, past conflicts, and even sharing fun memories that Al did not think Jim would remember! We had tried to find him before we left NJ six years ago, and we weren't able to. So this? It was definitely a blessing from God. They have been rebuilding a relationship and enjoying each step. This illness came out of left field - we knew he was getting older, but for him to be this much in need is overwhelming.

Today we learned from that dad does NOT have the savings we were told that he has. It was supposed to be used for end of life things such as cremation and burial in his mother's already existing burial plot. He wanted to be buried with her. We are now looking at additional expenses we did not realize when the time arises. In addition, the list is growing of items we will be buying when we get to NJ as well. Thank you everyone.

More items that we know we are going to need when we get to NJ to help Dad... We are looking into renting a Uhaul or a storage unit for any large items we need to move, as well as containers, storage buckets, and packaging materials we will need for the items Dad finds valuable. <3 Last night he was moved into his temporary home, and although settled in, is not happy. He is not HOME. He knows that he needs help to regain his strength from the sepsis. His legs and arms are weaker than before. Yet that is not bringing him comfort. We are praying we can talk to him and calm his fears. Thank you all for your help and love. J & J
