We were pleased to meet four carers for the first time - Aimee, Margaret, Euan and Eva, who were all very helpful. Dad really likes having some male company and he relaxed as soon as Euan walked through the door on Saturday night, and mum was singing Eva's praises when we arrived on Sunday morning. We've never met Arlene but I gather from dad that she was very helpful on Sunday lunchtime after he had a toilet 'accident', so please thank her from us.
I've come home feeling very relieved how everything has worked out, and I can't thank you all enough. Dad already seemed more comfortable with his shoulder and the extra medication in the morning meant I had a much more rational conversation with him when I got home. I know it will all change again, but please pass on my heartfelt thanks to all the carers, and to you, for all that you do.
