I wrote my first post on here a few days ago
My dad has Psp
My mum and I care for dad
Thanks to you lovely peeps it's made mum and me accept we finally need help!
I've organised a friend of a friend who is a carer to come in for 2 hours a week starting this week!
We will start by meeting her and ensuring dad is 100% ok with her
We will stay here for her first 3 visits (in another room) to ensure everything is followed to our liking
Then our intention is to start getting out for a coffee
Wow what progress this will be!!
And I must thank you all for realising mum n me must do this for our sanity
We had the very difficult conversation with my dad yesterday explaining that we must also look after ourselves and bless his heart he thought we were gonna say we'd had enough and he had to go into a home!
Never ever will this happen and we've promised my dad we will always care and look after him but we must have a small break every now and then! Dad totally understood this!! God he is beyond beautiful!!
