    Thinking about moving care homes..dilemma

    Hi Gigi If you are happy with the "new" care home, my vote would be to move Eric. Yes it may cause some short term issues but I feel that for the long term benefits it would be worthwhile. I've got my fingers crossed that SS make this an easy exercise for you both. Love Carina x x

    A sad day

    Hi Dunferline So sorry to hear about you dad's passing. It was lovely that all the family were together with him. I'm sure this will give you much comfort in the months to come. When my dad died, I too was shell shocked but also felt the "calmness" that you describe. Deep down we know...
