I'm thinking temporary with a view to permanent. It may not be what you want (it isn't what anyone wants) but there comes a time of need. How is your poor mum going to cope with your dad when she comes out of hospital? She's going to need plenty of rest and someone looking after her!
Sadly, your father isn't going to get any better. He needs a whole team of people to look after him now.
Jaded is on the nail I am afraid. Your mum really should not be doing this anymore.
The exhaustion could kill her before your dad and he will have to go into care anyway. She has a heart problem which could be made worse by inadequate sleep and the stress of looking after a PWD. Her health needs should take precedence over your dads wishes.
