<t>Thanks, you're right about the note.<br/> Part of the problem is that I would have liked to remove the aspirin from the pack. He shouldn't take them now the blood-thinners are taken. But the blister pack is sealed, every compartment separately. And one of the care workers told me that once I have...
<t>We have agency care workers in four times a day, three times double-handed. I'm really grateful that they encourage my brother to take his medication.<br/> However, recently there has been a change. He has three extra medicines to take and is not to take two of the existing ones. That is, three a...
<t>I agree with others that you need to get out. At the very least an evening class, and you could do the preparation for it while your mother is watching TV.<br/> <br/> My situation is that my brother has carers in four times a day and has the TV on most of the time. It is good for him if we watch ...
Btw, thanks re whiteboard. I have now found a magnetic whiteboard that fixed to the fridge, sounds ideal.
<t>crocus, you are right about all this batch cooking.<br/> <br/> I am not talking about being bored at eating the same thing two days running, by the way. That would be normal. I am talking about ever again. But still, I can try it. <br/> What happens is that he goes off things.We stock up on them ...

That all works for me except putting the frozen meal in the fridge so it thaws, if time in microwave is given as 'from frozen'. <br/> bowlingbun, as Anne01 says, out of the question in this area. And the carers do not pretend not to be able to cook, they just...
<t>Btw I am going to want to learn to use the hoist. I have no intention of making myself part of the daily plan, but tonight caree fell out of bed, we had to call the ambulance and he was hoisted from the floor - only because one paramedic had had hoist training. She said there are so many differen...
<t>Thanks very much for all suggestions.<br/> <br/> I must say that I am not a full-time carer and I don't want to create more work than I'm saving. I can see the sense of creating special bags in the fridge, but I can't see myself doing it. I do have a special shelf in the cupboard, but they don't ...
Thanks for the welcome, Tracie.
