Dad moved into ALF 6 months ago. The first month I visited every day, often stopping by briefly after work (30 minutes to an hour). After the first month, he became active in activities and I began skipping a few days a week.
Now he has a g/f and is involved with activities and ALF outings. I have begun visiting him on weekends only now, but continue to call him every day.
I wonder if I can/should start skipping weekend visits, narrowing my visits to every other weekend. Before he moved into the ALF, he was living by himself 400 miles away. He now lives 3 miles from my house. I do not want him to feel like I am hovering over him, but I don't want him to feel like I am abandoning him.
