Need help on how to help my dad

Hi all. My mum has just been diagnosed with bowel cancer. shes in hospital still and has a long way to go yet. we are all just taking it day by day and trying to stay positive and supportive. I am worried about my dad. he has always been one to keep to himself and never asks for anything. I know he isn't coping to well and i dont know what to do for him. I am seeing him daily and calling / texting him to make sure he knows i am here, but i dont know what more i can do. Some advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. xx

Jessik Sounds like you are doing all of the right things for both Mum and Dad, some of us fellers keep to much in, it is sometimes a generation thing.Keep up the good work, I am sure it is just as hard on you as well so don't neglect yourself or any support offered there are support groups as posted kj
