You cannot live for your dad. It just is not feasible. Life is not a guarantee of fair shakes. Taking care of yourself first helps you to be better with him. What is it worth to stay taking care of dad if there is exhaustion and resentment? Would you want him to do all this and feel all this for you if you were the one down for many years? What is, is. It is out of your control to make him whole again. He has to come to grips with what he has, on his own. Join a meetup group (find them online) and get involved with an activity you like and people of same interest. My mom got so horribly pushy to me yesterday, and here I am helping her with her fractured rib, etc. I went to my bicycle meetup group that evening and rode so hard. It was great!! And then we all went to a small outside restaurant with music and just enjoyed the company. I deserved that, I am human and deserve a life and friends. But I have to make it happen. I have to tell her no, I will see you on Thursday...etc. Your dad has to make things happen close to that at his home too. Sounds like he is mentally aware and can do so. Don't squash that by over care. Good luck, this stuff really is difficult and stressful. If there are emergencies then you are right on top of it, absolutely. Things he cannot possible handle. Like the nurses messing up his meds.

PS. The community groups I go to are found at Meetup.com. Just search for your interest and see if they have a group. Anyone can start a group of any interest. I am in 3 photography groups, and a "friends who get out and do things fun" group, a permaculture group, etc. You just go to the outings you want to and don't go on the ones your not interested in or can't. No pressure, no time frame.
