I don't know whether he could live by himself and will have to find counselling or geriatric assessment as he obviously needs help. I would like to know how I go about it financially. We are on pensions.
Husband aware of my intentions. He has been an alcoholic for years plus health problems. I have endeavoured to help him as much as possible; however, after 47 years of marriage I find I have no life. Prior to my telling him he had to get help for his alcoholism (for the umpteenth time) he has stopped drinking. Previously he was driving our grandson from school. Intelligence is not the way of the alcoholic's need. We have a golden oldie house, needing repairs and maintenance. I just want to move out and find a furnished suite until I can get my feet on the ground. Your help here is enormously appreciated.
Already Tried: Just advised him, however, having been in this house for almost 50 years (formerly his parents retirement cottage) we have loads of stuff to get rid of, pass on or scrub. I am from Scotland originally. My husband from the Prairies. We have two adult children. One highly successful, the other having had difficulties all his life including money handouts over the past 20 years. Another big headache...I know, life has no guarantees but enough is enough, n'est-ce pas?
