What a ...

... relief! Paid a visit to Dad today and he's enjoying himself! He says he felt at home nearly straight away. He's not doing anything different really. Mainly staying in his room, reading his newspapers and books and watching TV but the difference is that he's seeing different faces, talking to different people and socialising at mealtimes. He's chosen to have his meals in the lounge rather than his room, which is good. He was really animated and he wouldn't stop talking. It was good to see him like it so I'm now hoping I can arrange for this to be a regular thing - and I can enjoy the rest of my time off - LOL! He didn't mention yesterday so there's every possibility that he had no idea how significant the day was. I hope so anyway.

Thanks for dropping by .....

So glad to hear that your dad has settled in and enjoying himself. Less worry for you and more time for yourself so stop fretting about him - he sounds like he is having a good time.

So pleased to hear that your dad settled in ok. I do hope you can arrange more visits like this in the future, the time off without worry is a godsend. I know how tiring it can be to keep two homes going!

So glad your Dad has settled in ok Pam. Now he has broken the ice perhaps he will want to go in more often and give you some ME time.
As it must be awfully tiring having to go to his house so often.
