watchful, early september 09

Things were bad the evening I took this - about a month ago.  Many residents were restless and an aide was nasty to two different women. My father takes it all in but rarely comments on what goes on. I know it upsets him.

Sometimes it's with dread that I visit my father.   I don't know if the place will smell of soiled diapers.  I don't know if someone will be screaming and others screaming "Shut up."  I don't know if the tv will be blasting with some loud game show in the space everyone gets packed into sometimes.
