    I!!!8217;d appreciate it if anyone can offer any advice on MIL!!!8217;s situation please. The hospital are suggesting she will be ready to go home in a couple of days time. She is 82 years old, has just had major surgery and was widowed less than a month ago. Should anything be happening before she is released - should her home be assessed or anything like that first?
    Sorry if this is a daft or nave question but we have no experience of anything like this and have no clue what to expect.

    Ebay just suggested that I 'Decorate your hoe* this Christmas' - Don't you hate it when big companies monitor your net usage to the point where they know all about your personal habits


    * Although to be honest all the products they were suggesting I buy to decorate the hoe would look better in the home than in the garden shed draped over my gardening tools....

They should also do an assessment at home to see if she would benefit from any aids. I would recommend installing a lifeline is she doesnt already have one.

    It can all be a bit stressful but just be firm because if she is discharged without anything in place its difficult to get anything done retrospectively

    Hope that helps!
