    Those of yu who have read my psts will know that my parents moved into a Hostel about 15 months ago because Mum has dementia and she was already Dad's carer as he is seriously disabled.

    Dad's health has been precarious for a long time and over the last month has gone down hill rapidly. He was admitted to hospital on Tuesday night (with systems failure) and died just before 3am yesterday (Sunday morning).

    He passed peacefully and not in pain for which we are so grateful. But we are all in great pain, especially my dear Mum. Her AD is not so far advanced that she doesn't understand - in fact (amazingly) she has been at her best for a ong time over the last 2 weeks.

    Please TPers, think of us - but esp. of my poor little Mum - it breaks my heart to see her bowed under this terrible grief.

    So sorry to hear of your loss Nell. It's good that dad went without him being in pain. Like you say though, the pain for those left behind can be immense. How horrid for your poor mum. I think it must be so much harder to deal with grief at that stage of dementia. Sending love to both of you.

    So sorry Nell, to hear of your loss. I would like to offer my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences.

    I seems your Dad suffered long and hard, so I hope it will be some consolation for you to know he, at least, is now suffering no longer.

    I hope you will be strong enough to cope with your grief and the grief of your Mother.

    With love.............Grannie G

    Thank you so much to all of you for your kindness and your prayers. It is so hard for us at present but the thoughtfulness and support of many has been a huge help. Thank you for helping me and my Mum to bear this grief.
