I have a step-dad that is well up in his 80's. As a matter of fact he will become 90 in May and we are hoping he makes it. He is becoming so feeble and has been falling too much lately. I fear he is going to hurt himself really bad and then be in dire physical condition. Mom, is getting feeble as well and it's very hard for her to get around, much less help him when he falls. They haven't said anything about a nursing home, I think they are trying to stay at home as long as they can for each other.
