Taken in November 2013 at home in his bedroom.

I came to look after my father in November 2013, so that my mother could have a break from caring for him.  To keep myself busy, I set about taking photographs of him; he was a very willing model.  He obliging got into bed and shut his eyes.  He lay so still, I thought he had fallen asleep.  This photo of my father is very poignant as it is one of the last photos of him before dementia really set it; he died six months later in April 2014 in care home.
