Having a parent declared incompetent

How do I go about having my 63 year old Father declared incompetent? He has declared bankruptcy and will lose both his car and his home. He had a major aschemic stroke about a month ago and is ready to be released from the rehabilitation hospital. He needs 24 hour care as his left side is paralyzed. His mind seems okay until he starts talking about going home. This is impossible. What do I do in this situation. I can only do a certain amount to help him and feel he needs to be in a home of some kind where he can get the care he needs. He does not agree. What do I do? I am the ex-wife asking this quextion on behalf of my son who works long hours and asked me to help him out in finding information on this. Thank you for your assistance.
