Thank you. Guess I've "been there" "done that" with my father and my FIL (my mother and my MIL too to a lesser extent - because our fathers were still alive when they got sick/died). Who are only 2 people. Other people have other experiences. Unfortunately - many are with relatives with dementia (knock wood - we've never had to deal with it). If the OP's father is as described - has all/most of his marbles with physical issues - his experience is probably closer to ours than people dealing with dementia patients. Robyn

Update.
Thanks all for your advice and participation in the topic.
Dad will no longer require the services of a nursing home as on Nov7 he passed to a higher level of care.

Thanks
Its tough adjustment in life to realize you now have no living parents as Mom passed away about a year ago.Another realization is for the last 40 years i've been going to Florida several times a year to see Mom And Dad now i'm hard pressed to think of a reason to go to Florida.

I'm facing what you've faced in the upcoming 10-15 yrs. I feel that by that time, I've seen enough of FL and will find other parts of the country to venture out to to begin the final chapters of my life. I can imagine there's going to be a huge void in your life......with a lot of memories of those 40+ years.
