When are the government going to stop breaking their promises to the elderly and taking diabolical liberties with their lives and health, or even consider the strain on their carers. David Cameron backed the £35,000 cap on fees and now the elderly face paying £75,000 per person, this does not cover the cost of bed and board, food or heating which costs a further £7,000 to £10,000 a year. Residents would have to pay this on top of their care fees, total cost towards £200,000. I wonder what incentive this is giving to young people to work, save, or care, what example are the government giving. Just one of many examples is the disgraceful number of bureaucrats on six figure salaries across Whitehall the numbers of which are going up as there is a 50 percent rise in staff being paid £100,000 which the tax payer pays in full. Please read on the links- A Chilling vision, or warning I am sad to have to publish this so close to 2013, and to all those to whom this may affect I send my best wishes that they remain positive and strong. Please remember we are made of the same stuff as the stars and may blessings abound for all my friends. More news about me in the New Year.

Please read


At times I have been thought of as a pessimist, who hasn’t! The thing about pessimism is that we are never disappointed, but if we are always pessimistic nothing good ever happens, it is important to be positive because there are also always good things around the corner we just do not always see them straight away, remain positive folks and be at peace.

Carers Need More Medical Help

It is vital for older carers age 65yrs into their 90’s who are caring for their loved ones at home to get more medical help, I have been saying this for years on my website carers first concern is that their love one receives the love, care, and medical help they deserve, but who is caring for the carers. There has been enough time for the UK government to have done something about this long ago, as everyone is living longer and alzheimers and dementia increases what do they think is going to happen when they can no longer emotionally blackmail the carers as they drop from ill health and exhaustion, please catch up on the almost non existent progress on my website, it has been put on a back burner long enough, Please read the links below-

The Forgotten Fallen

Where is the compassion, not enough is being done for those suffering from PTSD post traumatic stress disorder, those returning from the horrors of war, for them and their families, and for anyone in despair your life is very precious please click on these UK links below, where ever you are seek help do not give in, and for those in a position to help no matter how small please do all you can, we all need each other. The Samaratins No Man is an Island No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. John Donne

A Word of Warning

Spare a thought for the thousands of elderly and vulnerable people who are continually at risk from the incredible number of scams around today that are in junk mail which is constantly dropping through the letter box, or phoned. Newspapers, magazines, and media should be more aware of what they are advertising regarding the amount charged for phone calls etc in order to enter any competitions in the first place, plus checking the validity of any ad charging money and stating what could be false credentials, I am a carer for my husband who has dementia and I have had experience of this, and I cannot stress the heartache and financial loss this can cause, having the responsibility of caring for his dementia when he was first diagnosed and sorting out the amount of horded junk mail and financial crisis due to the ridiculous law that I was unable to open his mail social workers were called in to help him deal with his problem, it is now reasonably under control thanks to their help although it is important a constant watch is kept.
Beware of the cost of phone calls required to enter these competitions and the cheap throw away gifts they offer, or lottery scams, remember if you have not entered for anything you cannot have won anything,. There are scams to numerous to mention, be ultra cautious, if in any doubt don’t gamble, delete emails without opening, destroy the junk, and use these links for help in UK.

The Greatest Compassion of All

Through all of life’s pains and
trials when a tortuous path must
be tread,
who will take the sufferers hand
to give healing comfort and ease
the dread,
we can open our eyes and see the
one who walked that path before,
he who sacrificed his life and
opened up the door,
he never left us all alone his spirit
is with us all when we call,
to give us strength and forgiveness
and help us up whenever we fall,
to remember him when we raise
our eyes to the vastness of the sky,
remember what he taught us, then
there is no reason to ask why.

by Pamela V Hall

Wishing all my friends a very happy and blessed Easter

Diabolical Treatment of the Elderly in UK Care Homes

When are the UK government going to do something about the quality of care in our care homes for the elderly where so many elderly people are being treated worse than animals? There are far too many managers of these homes putting greed before care, under staffing, bad training and the total lack of compassion is a disgrace to the UK, are the many elderly vulnerable people in the UK being looked on as collateral damage during this recession, do they have to go to the wall while the government mess about making excuses before doing something humane, we can only guess, meanwhile those who are losing their loved ones in unforgivable circumstances in these places grieve. People are not blind they see what is happening and realise their own tenuous future is not that far off, beware all those who can afford to turn a blind eye for they will soon become outnumbered.
The gap between young and old has been widening for decades, why not bring elderly people into the classroom where questions can be asked and answered and views shared, this is done for racial intergration why not for the elderly in the UK and everywhere else.

Not a Good Start For The Elderly 2012

Half way through the first month of January 2012 I cannot say it has been a good beginning for me considering that my 87yr old husband was admitted into hospital on Boxing Day, and my youngest daughter was admitted into the same hospital on a different ward at the same time, it was proved to me that the treatment of both had marked differences as my daughters treatment was excellent, but I had good reason to verbally complain to my husband’s nurses and the ward manager about his treatment, out of respect to my husband I will not go into the embarrassing details here except to say that what is reported in the newspapers about the disgusting treatment of the elderly in hospital is true having had experience of my husbands treatment recently.

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has said “It will often be in the best interests of dementia patients to be treated at home”. Many thousands of family carers who are elderly carers themselves like me in their 70’s, and 80’s and who are also suffering ill health themselves while caring for a partner or relative could definitely do with much more help than is now available to enable them to give the dementia patients the nursing, physical, and mental care needed in order for them to remain at home.

Now the elderly have to suffer insults and bullying by those who propose that elderly home owners who have paid their taxes and worked a lifetime to pay for their homes should move out of their family home and get shoved by councils into other housing, as Saga’s Ross Altmann said “ It is outrageous social engineering” despite paying their taxes and being thrifty all their lives the elderly may now have to free up the equity in their homes to fund care while those who have squandered their money or lived off the state will get their care free. Every year 20,000 pensioners have to sell their homes to pay for residential care, would it not be fairer for the funding to be out of general taxation like the NHS.

Why have people been blind as to what has been happening over a number of years and led to this situation as I have so often pointed out on my website-
Everyone must take responsibility including the government. In my opinion how can we dictate to other countries about human rights when this and so many wrongs are happening here in the UK everyone should put their house in order globally.
