    hi everyone

    i am pleased to report that we have looked at another home for my father it is much more suitable for him:) my mum is pleased and is willing to give respite another go. the staff were lovelly and fully trained in all matters relating to alzheimers even trained in dealing with dads colostomy bag why i wonder was this place not made available to us in the first place but hey we got there in the end. he will be going in for a week in october as mum is going away again fingers crossed she wont have to come ho9me early again:eek:

    he is at the moment very excited because myself and my husband are taking him on a cruise in sept something he has always wanted to do and i feel now is the right time to take him and spend quality time together for myself and dad

    will keep you posted on events

    and thanks again for all the support i recieved from this forum. i sometimes struggle to provide input for others on here its just that i dont really know what to say or suggest as i am just starting on this terrible journey hopefully given time i will be able to provide support to others
