It's not just the social worker, It's also his step-neice, his neighbor and the care worker he recently fired (hires and fires frequently) She was visiting him 2 hours a day at 15 $/hour but he thought this was "robbing" him. My father and I have not been in contact for 25 years-and I never grew up with him- also he molested me when i was visiting him when I was only 12 years old. His wife of 30 years recently died-he was care-giving to her many years. He is now all alone and very sad, had lost much weight untill neibor found this care giver to help out and 2 doctors say he has dementia and put him on meds-he was doing better, but after firing caregiver he hasn't taken them (they were helping a little) He was very happy to hear from me and I told him I forgive him some years ago. You can tell even on the phone he cant remember words and names and get confused. I asked If He would trust me to help with things he said yes- agreed to pay 1/2 plane fare.

I appreciate your question and repeat customers. You can request me by beginning your question with "Dear XXXXX..."
To apply to CA for legal aid, wouldn't I have to live there?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX first 2 links you gave me won't work. Otherwise I would be satisfied-maybe I can do some digging on my own and key them in to see if they still exist. Are you sure there aren't any lawyers who would take a case like this on "contigency" is that the right word?
