So I have been off line since the move but a kind friend leant me a dongle to enable me to speak to you all again.
Respite went better than I ever could have hoped. He loved it at the hotel where everyone was lovely and it didn't cost him anything. He wants to go back again soon . So i have booked him in for the week when I go to New York with my daughter for 4 nights but am contemplating a fortnight as he only came home on Sunday and already I am exhausted.
House move went well got the decorators and builders in at the moment and am chasing round choosing carpets wall paper and new kitchen.
OH going now to day care 3 days a week just for this week to give me some space. Not sure really how much more of his aggression ( just started again) , wandering , checking and just general bad attitude towards me , I can stand.
I know people have it far tougher and are very tolerant. But maybe I am not cut out to be a carer.
I must confess that I thought I would have some fairly harsh negative comments for not being able to cope as well as many people clearly do.
So thank you for being so kind . maybe three days a week on a perm basis will help me cope better. He really enjoys going there . Today he and three other men had a men only club and spent the afternoon chatting about all the important things in life whilst the carers supplied them with tea and coffee. I still am in awe of how they have made him feel part of their world.
not from anyone on TP, surely !I thought I would have some fairly harsh negative comments for not being able to cope as well as many
