A Daughter’s Journey With Her Dad’s Azheimer’s

Wow. We were having an early supper and phone was ringing. I said to hubby to “let the machine pick up”. It was already after 4 p.m. so didn’t think it would be Home Care. How wrong I was! Checked the message and phoned them back right away.

So tomorrow will be having a meeting here to discuss my Dad. After that. they will have a visit with him. But that will be another day. Can only do so much as once.

Relieved to see that action is happening. Distressing that this is what the situation calls for but still need and want to make arrangements. Feel validated that my thoughts on the matter seem fairly accurate although the situation is serious.

Seems like we are on our way to having Dad’s name on a list for long term care. Also was told that 30 beds have opened up in one area here on the island. And that there are various options available. Although, I have my choice in mind for a final living place, it is good to know that there is a short term alternative.

At this point, I feel that I have a handle on the issue and everything is as up-to-date as can be.

Feeling blessed that progress is happening. Hopefully will sleep better tonight and tomorrow night.
