Update on Dad – Good news

Some good news came through this morning, my dad’s assessment was completed and he’s been identified as needing more permanent assistance, ie placement in an assisted living facility.  That itself is not the good news, of course we (he and us) would prefer he be as independent as possible however his mental capacity and physical capability has diminished lately and more care is required.  That the assessment was completed is the good news.  Now we wait.

For me it’s a weight off, I was becoming overwhelmed with the process and my personal mental care was/is suffering.  I am trying to remain positive, to relearn some emotional skills, understand myself and improve.  Perhaps this was a test.  Did I pass?
