    Hi All
    Dad is going into full time care in a couple of weeks. He has been respite a number of times over the past two years. I've now got nearly everything in place. Going to personalise the room a bit next week. I like the room and its a lovely place.
    I'm feeling numb almost spaced out at the moment. He's lived with us for 5 years . We are both now in are 60s and definitely need sometime to ourselves . I just wish so much I could explain it all to him. He will only be 5 mins away from me and I intend to still be a big part of his life. But even so I'm feeling very odd.
    Thinking of you all going through this o_O X
