It is interesting how threads suddenly come to life again after over a year. Yes, Specsavers is NHS approved and has a branch in every large town. There may be other NHS approved shops. Yes, Emily, it is always best to refer hearing problems initially to your GP, who will refer you if necessary. Som...
This thread was marginal in its connection with caring from the outset, and it has become more a consumer affairs matter than a caring one. I have said plenty and have reached the point where it is time for me to bow out. My prediction is that those who opt out of the cheap-rate variable tariffs ava...
I often watch tv programs on subjects I'm hardly likely to do, cakes I'm not going to bake. I climb Mount Everest from my armchair! . . . Mightn't the choice of what's on the tv depend on the likes and dislikes of the healthcare workers who have the remote control? . . . Thanks, Rosemary. Maybe I w...
Hello Lesley. Quite simply, your mum needs to be in a care home, where she will be under the constant care of staff trained to deal with conditions like this. You need to give your own health a chance; the more you let it deteriorate the less help you will be to her or anyone else. I presume mum's h...

My concern with these smaller companies is small fish in a big pond. They do well for a year or two building up a customer base and good reputation then next thing you know they either fail to meet government targets or attract the attention of someone else and end up getting taken over/sold off, a...
Never a good move but ... as austerity works it way up the income scale , little option for many ... short of downsizing and / or moving into another area. I wonder how many students are financed by equity release loans ? Or , first time buyers making a move into the property market. The real fun w...
Thanks again for your comments, James. I am sorry you are less enthusiastic about Bulb. The best choice for one person may not be the best for another. It depends on how much fuel you use, and other things, including location. If the power goes off, phone the company that supplies the local electric...

ALL of which are far more expensive apart from 1 company called BULB . i live in a small ( ish ) town in Scotland that is serviced by very little in the way of companies . the choices i get when...
