I have zero control over what actually happens and whether or not they actually get into a home because, as I've said, I'm neither the executor or one of their children. I'm a family friend helping out, and have no say in much more than what they eat and what clothes he wears that day. I was asking for advice on making everybodys quality of life better, not on why I shouldn't be doing what I am. The fact of the matter is I'm here until I can get my funds together to move, or until one of their children steps up.
The barn is my project. I'm working for a man who bought this run down property across town and its my job to oversee the daily runnings and reconstruction. It has nothing to do with the house or the elderlys, and everything to do with my workload.
As far as the bathing thing. His one daughter who's here with me gives up when he fights with her about the shower and I end up giving him a sponge bath in his chair. He went two weeks without actually being naked in soapy water, but he did get cleaned, and does on a bi-daily basis. Sometimes alex puts him in the shower, sometimes I get the bucket out. It depends on his mood that day.
As far as my legal standing, I'm hoping to be out of here soon. I'm hoping their other children will step in once I'm gone as my partner can NOT do this on her own. If not their children, a well placed call to the lawyer brother should solve it. Someone will make him see reason.
But until such day as someone who's actually got a say in anything does something, all I can ask is how can I better their quality of life? How can I make the days go smoother or at least without so many outbursts? I can accept it if there is no way, but that's the advice I've been looking for. There's not much I can do otherwise.
