Mam was smashing when dad picked her up after tea yesterday! On top of breakfast and lunch, she'd also eaten all of her tea. And - get this - a musician visited the home yesterday, and mam was up singing and dancing!
Oh the relief ... Please let this be the answer, at least for now.
It's sounds and looks to be a really good solution. It must make your Dad feel so much better to think that he can cope knowing that he will get a decent break every week. Although your Mam can't express this I am sure she feels better for it too and she is never left for too long wondering when she will see your Dad or go back home again. I really hope for you all that this is the answer for now and that your Dad is beginning to benefit from the respite as well as Mam. Lovely newsxx
