Just do it! My husband balked at the idea for a long time. Finally, I didn't give him a choice and just did it. It gave me a very much needed break 3 days a week for about an hour and a half, on those days. Now, he absolutely loves the woman who comes in to help him with the morning routine 3 days a week and he gives her a kiss on the hand before she leaves every time.
It's good, not just because you get a break but, also because it gives your dad someone else to talk to! He needs more stimulation from the outside.
You'll see a positive change in the attitude, once he gets used to having that extra person around. It gives him something to look forward to. Just expect a period of adjustment before the good results happen.
