Missing her "Dad"

Ever since M. has been in the rest home Kath has been missing him and spends most of her time on a dining chair situated in the lounge.  Have never seen her there before but she hardly leaves it.

The rest home has been very good and are trying to keep M. occupied.  I went to see him yesterday (and collect his washing) but he was out on a bus trip.  He will be at the Alzheimer's Club again today.  Unfortunately, they tell me he is very confused.  I will walk down again today after he is due back to see how he is.  When I phoned he was having difficulty - not sure whether it was hearing or comprehension.


  1. Oh Sue this is such a difficult time. My thoughts and prayers go out to you xx

  2. Poor Kath, no clue why her person is missing.

    Alzheimer's is a rough place to be, sorry to hear that. It affects everyone concerned.


  3. Thanks, both of you. I have just been out to a friend's house for morning coffee. We met at the Alzheimer's seminar. Her husband has since died and she said she sometimes feel guilty that she now has things so easy!!!!

    It was great to have some time chatting and catching up with her.

  4. I know it is a comfort to express your feelings and fears with somebody who has been down the same road as you. I am so glad you have this friend.

  5. SO,AC-M Yes, it is good to be able to talk to people who have been through the same thing and understand.
