Nervous about seeing Dad again

Hope I am in the right forum!! My father is in Australia, I'm in UK. My beautiful husband died from the pneumonia following Alzheimer's so I have been emotional seeing Dad on visits. So far he is really good, still clothes himself, showers, shaves, toileting, and even helps prepare teas and coffees, etc, but doesn't know my name if someone talks about me. He is hallucinating now and thinks he lives on a cowboy ranch. I am off to Australia on Sunday and nervous about how he will be. Anything I can do to ease those nerves?

Just be yourself and let you dad see you being yourself. It`s OK to be emotional. You don`t need to pretend. He is your dad.

Have a good trip. Enjoy what can be enjoyed.
