My mother died last year, and my father moved in with us last March. He is intermittently confused, and I worry about leaving him alone. But I have a daughter and grandson in New Orleans (we live in Ohio) and another daughter in France. My father is in stage four renal failure and I think it's affecting him mentally. Usually he's OK but sometimes he does irrational things. I don't feel comfortable with leaving him alone, but he doesn't want to go to an assisted living facility while we're gone, and doesn't want "strangers" in the house. How can I stop worrying about him setting the house on fire while we're gone?
