Hi, you are right about the attention on Mum but he worries about her if she isn't cared for too. I have asked for a meeting with her Consultant and should know more tomorrow ....care at home is also being stepped up. My daughter is 26, incredibly supportive and mature and I rarely ask her to get involved as it isn't her responsibility but she wanted to give the rest of us a night off and she can manage her Nana very well so she insisted. I'm sure you are right about Dad being depressed and he is now seeing GP frequently but his medications are so finely balanced they won't introduce anything else yet. Thank you for replying.
