    Hi,
    My dad was diagnosed with AD 3 yrs ago, and is already late stage 6/early stage 7.
    My four siblings and I share care for him, some do days and others of us do nights.
    Mum cared for him on a daily basis til last July when she took Ill, and sadly passed away just after Christmas.
    Reading through some of the postings here has helped me to form the opinion that I am not going mad, nor am I as selfish as I though, i.e. putting dad into day care on occassion just so that we can have some time to ourselves.
    Any way Dad starts respite for 2 weeks on Sunday next, and I fly to Spain on holidays for two weeks on SUNDAY NIGHT. :)
