    Hello
    His dad asked for care, asked for it to be sorted for the last7 years i have been going there and was told when something happens to you it will be sorted
    What im saying is yes he wants to stay in his home but they were going to send him home last week with a half baked idea of care
    He wouldnt be able to cook etc as cant carry , stand without his rollator (sp), he cant even wash his own hair, he would never manage without someone there

    When it comes to entering residential care, this is often based on the cost effectiveness of service provision.

    Brace yourselves, on Sky news T are apparently running low on UniL products in some stores due to a row over UniL trying to bump up prices by 10% on some key brands.

    It is a good job I have a stash of various items to ride out the storm .

    Love all the stories about other people wasting their money! Depressing all these banks dropping their interest rates. However, I did read last week on one of the online papers that the government is going to bring back some sort of bond to help savers. This is going to be announced at the end of november - so a little hope there.
    Went to westwood cross shopping centre in thanet today so many shops there couldn't get them all done. Not many bargains. Read on another forum that arm and hammer toothepaste is great for senstive teeth so got some of that 125ml in poundworld which is much cheaper than all the other top brands. Also abact hand gel 237ml which I will decant into smaller bottles for holidays/picnic bag. SA in tesco said she could only accept 5 hipp coupons but then noticed she had scanned so let me have it this time! nice overage of £1.98 by just sticking to 100pc fruit ones. Lots of clearance bargains in this tesco on a large cage down first aisle for an other eliters reading (come back the eliter from this way) used to love your posts but cant remember your name!
    Am also have a big declutter and having a bootfair on sunday weather permitting. Cannot get the timing right for whoopsies at Asda so am very jealous of trulymadly's 10p items.

    I am lost when I am not at work, and start to thinking about cleaning and then realise how silly I am and go to work!

    If there isn't, there used to be some provision to help/run these package of support, I am assuming that there is similar provision.

    It does raise the importance of planning, and having things like power of attorney in place before you need it x

    Caring? office work? stripper? What about doing car boot sales (stock from house clearance and glitching.

    I have to admit I would be lost without work (this is a deficiency in me).
