staying on track

My father's behavior has been very peculiar lately. He and Mom have been married for 45 years. Of course, all marriages go through ups and downs. They have had their share of health problems. Both are doing OK but are dealing with some medical issues.

Because of my father's actions, I'm afraid for my mother's emotional state. He stays gone for long periods of time throughout the day and sometimes stays out until the early morning of the next day. She always stays up until he gets home. When she calls or texts him, at times he doesn't respond. I've also called or texted him while he was out. When I tried talking to him, he said he doesn't have to explain himself. He's not the best at staying on track when it comes to taking care of himself.

He's not the best at staying on trackはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

 He's not the best at staying on trackはどのような意味でしょうか?

on track 下記の3「軌道上に」の比喩です。

 直訳すれば、「彼は、線路上にとどまるのが最高では無い」

 それから「彼は往々にして脱線する」>「彼は時々どこにいるのかわからなくなる」>

 意味は「(家人に)は彼は自分の所在を報せようともしない」ということだと思います。
