Social services dragged feet until the District nurse visited and was horrified. All sorted by the end of the day. Shame it took the nurse to see the seriousness of the situation
Need some advise please for a friend. She is the main carer for her husband who has dementia. She has had a fall and broken an arm. Discharged same day from hospital straight back home and expected to resume her carers role. GP doesn’t seem bothered, social services “ will get back to you” WHAT on e...
Hi - We had a similar issue in the first lockdown but our new carer wasn’t so discreet.

I must just add she only has a few teeth at the bottom of her mouth I tried a Sunday roast and popped the meat into a f...
