My father and mother have a routine. However, Mom does things that merit a nurse to come in and spend a few hours a day to relieve Dad so he can get some rest. Dads routine is driving mom around, taking her to breakfast, sometimes lunch. He cooks dinner. Meantime she asks all day, lets go eat, lets get out of this house, lets go home. Hundreds of times a day. Dad is tired. We do what we can, and we are tired emotionally and physically sometimes. Very sad to see our parents facing old age. They live in florida and we were able to have a wonderful young girl come in for about 4 times. And then Dad said, we dont need her'..and ended it. Now we are back to square one. He and 'we' needed her.
