    I agree entirely mhoc, and with LEJC who also said similar earlier.

    Off the top of my head I know we have doctors, dentists, accountants, business managers, environmental professionals, talented students and trainee lawyers, and I'm sure we can add more to the list. All doing their bit for the health and prosperity of others.

    And they are all happy, buoyant and looking ahead. It would be one amazing party if they all got together!



    Hopefully we will all be kept handsomely in our old age...

    One day when we were chatting and talking about future plans I said that it looks like we will be spending your inheritance, he replied, You spend it mam, we've got what we need and I wouldn't be where I am today if you hadn't supported me and 'pushed' me.
    I was quite choked up when he said that.
    He does do very well working in wireless technology and although he wil,l and does, spend, when he first met the girl who became our DDIL his nickname was 'Billy Bargain' as he always researches the best deals.

    My DD, having observed my struggles with both parents, decided long ago that when it came to me, the care home option was the only viable choice.

    Mind you, care homes of the future should be very different from now. We are, after all, the rock, reggae, disco and pop generation....

    About 12 years ago a colleague of mine was involved in the design of a new care home/sheltered accommodation, it took a bit of doing but the final spec included internet access in all rooms anda spa.

    Ideally if you have several children you could go on extended visits to each child's home in turn until they get fed up of you and in between times last minute cruises - cheaper than care homes
    Thats our plan anyway
    Originally posted by mhoc
    I've had a few interesting 'debates' with managers/finance regarding funding for cruises for local authority 'service users' a cruise can offer respite for the carer, meals, laundry and social engagement can all be taken care of, but, obviously, holidays can'y be paid for out of the 'public purse'.
