Better news about Dad
Well, I thought I'd let you all know that I've finally got Dad into a lovely care home. It really is a beautiful place - he has his own little apartment with en-suite shower and kitchenette. The communal lounge and dining areas are really smart and I know he's going to get well looked after.
He's improved a bit physically as well, because he's eating properly now. But he's still quite mentally challenged, which is why he needs looking after. He was a bit bewildered about the move, because he's forgotten it was happening. But as soon as we'd unpacked all his favourite things and put them about the appartment he was really happy. He said he really liked the room.
Another good thing is that its only about 100 yards from where he used to live, and he already knows one of the other residents so its not too strange for him.
Its such a relief to me (for those of you that don't know - I am his only living relative and I live over 100 miles away). It's great that he's settled in before Christmas. Maybe I'll be able to spend bit more time on CatForum, now!
Finally, thank you so much to everyone who was sending me good thoughts and prayers about Dad.
