I feel better that bro is staying for now. It lifts the pressure off. Last night we went to the pub with one of his mates. I did not visit dad tonight, I just wanted to come home. Maybe tomorrow.

Thanks all of your support - I really appreciate it.

you went to the pub with one of his mates, presumably having said mate is conditional on not having a mental illness diagnosis, tell me about it

I am going to visit dad tomorrow. I did not go today. I feel a bit guilty. He has been abusive to the staff but he is still my dad.

It can be so hard caring for someone with dementia, a change of scene can disturb them.
Don't feel guilty, you have to take care of you to.

My father passed away Aug 17th. He had a heart attack in his sleep, it was peaceful. He was in the hospital at the time. Blessings to all. :hug:
