I agree with Melly too. You were obviously a great friend and neighbour to this lady and I imagine her daughter is now realising she could have done more herself. As they say “there’s nowt so queer as folk”. I was very friendly with a 92 year old lady a few years ago because she was interesting to c...
I donated to this the other day. This man has done so much for the cause.
Penny, I think it's shocking that social care want to send your friend's Mum to a care home that requires improvement. Page 25 offers advice about this https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/information-guides/ageukig06_care_homes_inf.pdf Your Mum living out her days with great care...
An old friend has been phoning me a lot lately as her elderly Mum has had a bad fall. The long and short of it is, after several weeks in a rehab hospital they have said that she needs full care now and could not manage on her own. She is totally shocked to find that her Mum is being moved to a home...
Oh Sarah I do feel for you. A few years ago my very elderly Mum was very ill in hospital and we thought we might lose her. The hospital was a 60 mile round trip and I went most days. With all this going on I wasn’t thinking about form filling or anything and I genuinely forgot to tell the DWP that M...
It’s really sad but I think you have tried your best. To be honest, it can’t be much fun being very old with health problems/poor mobility or anything that goes along with old age can it? I used to look at my Mum (who died at 96) and she couldn’t walk, had a stoma, had obsessions about going to the ...
Someone much better informed than myself will be along soon but as far as I know they can’t make you pay the extra and as it has been her home for 2 years it would be cruel to move her. I know how quickly care home fees can eat away at your savings because my poor old Mum was in the same position. T...
Why don’t you receive any financial help?

Your daughter is entitled to benefits in her own right. My daughter is a similar age and recently left home to live with her boyfriend so I know it will be a huge step for you both.
Oh Derek, I do feel for you and your son. I understand that every hospital now has to employ Specialist learning Difficulties Nurses whose job is to work solely with people with LD and their families. My ex neighbour told me this as she does this job herself in our large regional hospital. She conta...
Hi Penny, it has taken a over a month and 17 messages from me, re-entering information, resubmitting the same information, receiving a letter for S saying he hasn't declared something (that hadn't even happened) and that he owed money (he didn't) dealing with a a letter to him posted on his journal...
