How to Cope With It All?
My mother is still home with me, but I can imagine I would be feeling much the same way as you would be if she were to move. It's hard to reconcile knowing logically that your father is getting the care he needs with the emotional loss/sadness you are feeling.
I'm sure others will share their experiences, but I think what you are describing is a normal reaction and that you will adjust in time. It sounds as if there is much to be grateful for - good staff, proper care, he's safe and comfortable in his new surroundings.
This disease is filled with loss after loss. So, allow yourself to grieve this new loss but try to focus on all the positives.
