Welcome to the forum Pat Sorry to hear your life is so frustrating. My husband is in a nursing home because of strokes and vascular dementia. Different circumstances to yours. However, does your husband seem to have memory problems? I'm wondering, if he has had a TIA ( mini stroke) which has caused ...
Mary. I'm sure the bank will come to a sensible arrangement. They won't take all of the pension as it will just cause more difficulties. Really, and I know it will be difficult, your fella should just be given cash now, and you deal with the rest, involving the card etc. Afraid it's another awful st...
My friend has had some very demanding phone calls, from supposedly HRMC. Obviously a scam. Im wondering if scam letters are sent out too. Maybe just telephone them directly with a general enquiry. I've never heard of letters sent out like that. ISAs , I believe it's 20thousand tax free any way. What...

When he was in the stroke ward, I witnessed, not only with him, but other patients, anger, and frustration, and families say...
((( HUGS))) LesleyAnne. I'm sure your husband feels 21years of marriage is too much to throw away too!! Hope he sees sense asap as I'm sure he will. It's a rotten time for you both. Have some time together if you can, a meal, or whatever you like. Mother in law must NOT be mentioned!! Will be hard, ...
Good to hear from you, and that things are moving in the right direction. Keep in touch.
