Some kid messed something up and they told my uncle to fire him.
He didn't do it cleaning carpets. He was doing something in the yard. He was wasted when he fell. He fell backwards and his leg caught the fence and it ripped almost all the way off. He was so drunk he was walking around with a giant chuck of meat flapping on his leg. He told my other uncle to drive him to the hospital. My other uncle freaked out when he saw it and called 911.

Keep in mind most high functioning alcoholics present a different persona at work .
It never hurts to try. The only stupid question is the one you failed to ask .
You can at least put the bug in his ear to reach out to some of his former employers contacts .
If his ex employer didn’t make your uncle sign a noncompete . Shame on them the clients are fair game if he can undercut them enough you never know how they’ll help.
It’s worth mentioning at the very least your uncle will pop a beer and laugh.
Now for your other uncle .
You’ve got to tell us the story of how he fell off a ladder cleaning carpets ?
Wow that would be a great help. I can't do it all on my own. It's really taking a toll on me. I know where all her papers are. She's actually my step grandmother. She married my grandfather after her first husband died in Vietnam. My grandfather was 20 years older and he was in WW2 at D-day. Even though she's technically my step grandma she's my grandma to me. She was married to my grandfather before I was born.

Contact the VA. You will need his discharge papers or something to prove he was in the military.
It's easy to find online. They'll clean the house, provide meals, provide nurses. And pay for assisted living, etc.
My parents just went through the process, not easy, but the VA will help.
Bless you. You are a saint. You need your own life though. Will be thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way.
