Hi everyone my father is 80 and really stubborn!!! His brother who is 88 was recently admitted to a nursing home. He has anyersums in hsi stomach but was healthy and active. His health has gone downhill lately and he now needs full time care. I want my father to visit him but he wont. He says its because his brother never told him he was going in to the home. I am not sure that this is the reason. Last May my father lost another brother. He was just a year younger that my father and they were very close. This is a large catholic irish family so there were 14 siblings and many have died over the last 8 years. There are only 5 of them left now. My father also saw his brother who was a just a year older die in front of his eyes when he was 8. ( hit and run) My father ,I think cannot bear to think about losing his oldest brother. They do get on and my father went to dinner with him after the funeral of their younger bother last year. I think he needs to visit. He will regret it later on I know he will. How can I get him to visit his brother ??? Katie xxx
