<t>It's a sad fact that people who have saved for a small pension, or who are lucky enough to have been able to purchase a house, find that these assetts are diminished when they become involved with social services. <br/> The government will not allow savers to retain their former standard of livin...
<t>The census is not perfect as I pointed out on 16 April, but it is better than nothing.<br/> Local Authorities should be especially concerned as they have to fund the needs of Carers via social services departments etc.. <br/> Am I perhaps being cynical to suggest that the Government will not welc...
<t>It's just a thought, but I wonder if the right of Carers to request 'flexible working' could be applied in this case. i.e. the right to work permanent nights as an exception to company / Trust policy to reduce the number of permanent night workers.<br/> Permanent night work may have deleterous he...
<t>Hi Papasmurph. I am not legally trained. When I was a shop steward this sex discrimination legislation had not been invented.<br/> I am simply considering the case I would have made in these circumstances thirty odd years ago in the light of my own ten years nursing experience.<br/> I think Charl...
<t>Hi papasmurph, I don't think that the sex discrimination Act tactic will work. All the management have to show is that if a male nurse was in the same position as your wife, then he would be treated the same as she. The fact that there are fewer male nurses than female who are Carers does not see...
<t>It is very easy to get emotional about this particular suicide, but children and adults commit suicide all the time. It would be very strange , given the stresses of the job, if some of them were not Carers. When it comes to allocating money, the government at national and local level are influen...
<t>Hi Lesley, glad Ozzy is getting his exercise, didn't know you had another dog! I agree a dog is better than medicine to keep you sane any day. Gets you out of the house when otherwise you would sit in and stare at the wall.<br/> Maybe the Citizens Advice Bureaux or Welfare Rights will help you wi...
Well the link worked this time. Thanks for the offer Rosemary. I'll pop round on my bike in about a fortnight. Yours is a better offer than the one I have at the moment. I have to brew my own tea and not a biscuit in the house !! My neighbour has organised a strawberry tea this afternoon and has man...
<t>Will someone please investigate why I keep getting messages saying that a reply has been made to a topic I have visited. Only to find when I press the reply link, that another message is displayed saying 'this topic does not exist' ?<br/> Sorry I'm a bit grumpy this morning, but I was up half the...
<t>Hi Lesley, so sorry to hear of your loss. It's a while since I last posted on the forum and I'm sorry it had to be on an occasion like this. <br/> As you know I am a church organist andit is quite proper and fitting for the bereaved to chose music appropriate for them, for the occasion, however u...
