<t>Hi Dorothy<br/> <br/> I would contact the SS emergency service--I don't know what area you live in but they should have a Rapid Response team they can send in to help you.<br/> Tell them you can not possibly manage on your own and not only is your health at risk but also your husbands.<br/> <br/>...
<t>The ones I feel sorry for are the ones who are being badly affected by all this through no fault of their own. The hospice where she has spent the weekend is surrounded by police and press. People going to the hospice to visit loved ones who are dying are having to prove ID to get into the place ...
After hearing her on carers and JSA...appalling choice! NO way can that woman represent our interests!

<t>Matt<br/> <br/> I'm sorry you feel my reaction was over the top- it was my gut reaction as soon as I saw your announcement.<br/> There are so many things carers need to just exist, and I know in my own case--saving is a total impossibility.<br/> <br/> Excalibur<br/> I am on the site, as is my rig...

<t>Hi Marie<br/> Sorry you've had a lousy Christmas-but then, to carers, it's just another day in the year long struggle.<br/> I agree with you about the home, because though we keep being told there are some good ones out there ,I have yet to find one. <br/> I feel it's people like your family who ...
