I'm off - again!

Well, today I will be going back to see my dad and move him BACK to his old house. ...so if I don't respond to emails or comments right away, it's because I don't have internet access.
He is unhappy at his new home. It is beautiful, great food, great care - but he is still lonely - and he says he would rather be lonely near family and friends than with a bunch of strangers who don't really care about him . It should be an easy move because everything is already sorted. His old house has been freshly painted and the carpets cleaned, so that shouldn't be so bad either. We are getting him a "first alert" pendant - he's already used to wearing one.
Oh well....what ya gonna do?...we just want him happy....and safe.

Good luck Connie-I am praying you can get him settled and happy quickly and effortlessly. (We found a meals on wheels program and that many elderly look forward to the daily visits-if that is of help to you. Many enjoy the daily socalizing more than the food, and at least they are home in their own environment.)
