Default Need Advice Please

I was wondering if I could get some advice. My father in-law was diagnosed almost one year ago now with ALS. He seems to be progressing very quickly? He is no longer able to walk on his own and is very weak. My husband and I are talking about moving in with him so he can stay at home rather then go into a long term care facility. Family members are taking turns right now staying with him during the day and night but we can't keep it up for much longer. Along with the ALS he also has dementia which takes away his ability to think logically and also effects his memory. I know it will be very difficult as I also have a year old baby. I am wondering if I could get some advice and support. I am just not completely sure I know what to expect. This forum is wonderful! Thank you to everyone who keeps it going.
