Yes, you need a quarterback to help you determine what the best care is for your father at this point, is it medications, is it a certain kind of physical or occupational therapy, is it a safety issue, is it an anti-depressant and some counseling, etc. These are the questions a physiatrist can help you answer, can educate you and your father on what to expect and help guide you through the healthcare system.
