I'm very sorry to hear about your dad. I heard some advice which I think
is sound. There is a temptation to take over from the patient and do
everything for him. This is not at all helpful; it seems to lead to more
rapid deterioration due to lack of 'exercise' of the remaining brain
power. I don't know to what extent you can apply that, even if you wish
to, but it might help.
