Hi, I don't really know what I expect from this post but here goes. My lovely dad passed away 10 years ago after we could no longer manage at home with his deteriorating mental health and the effect this had on his behaviours. He was only in the nursing home for a few months when he fell and fractured his femur following which his physical health rapidly declined. I have lived with this guilt for 10 years and today I have been an emotional wreck after my friend has announced that her dad who is in physical ill health will be cared for at home as they couldn't put him in a home. The guilt has become unbearable. If I could turn back time I would give up my own job as a nurse to care for him full time at home. I feel as though I must be a terrible person and I let my lovely dad down when he needed me most. I'm interested to know if others feel this way too. Thanks for listening/reading.
