<t>Does anyone know the answer to this:<br/> As we have worked all our lives and saved, when my husband, who has parkinsons (I am his sole carer 24/7) deteriorates to the point when I cannot manage him, he will have to go into a care home and we will pay all costs. I am worried that if he lives long...
Hi Frandrake and Scally (reminds me of when I used to work in LIverpool! http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_biggrin.gif ), many thanks for your suggestions.

I need some sort of alarm that I can have in my bedroom at night, so my husband can alert me if he needs anything (he is in a separate room). Anyone found anything? He has Parkinsons so I need a one press button which he can man...

<t>I care for my husband who has Parkinsons disease. His main problem is a very severe tremor. Now this makes using the phone very difficult as he cannot hold it still. I have been trying to locate a decent handsfree phone, without success. What he needs is a phone which he can speak at without hold...
