Oh, a friend in NE London has just said that they're having an absolute cloudburst - she says it's so loud they can't have a conversation!!!

Foxes

Posted: 19/09/2014 at 14:51

This time of year young adult males are being ejected from the clan and go out to find their own territory and this is when we sometimes find foxes in areas where they've not been before.  Try to make sure you and your neighbours make him feel unwelcome - lock up poultry and small pets, don't leave food out that might tempt them to visit.  Set up intruder lights that will switch on when they come into your garden (just for a couple of months your neighbours will have to be understanding).  Hopefully the fox will move on

Try to make sure that they keep her in long enough after the saline drip is removed, to get her used to drinking enough by mouth.  So often they rehydrate them then discharge - then they get dehydrated again.  It's the 1:1 support in hospital that is so important for the elderly confused.

The thing is a lot of elderly people seem to cut back on their liquid intake because getting to the loo can be difficult, or they can be afraid of/embarrased by 'leakages'. 

The problem is that the more concentrated the urine, the more likely it is that they will get urinary tract infections or 'urgent need to visit'. 

Quite often as soon as someone finds out that many/most elderly people use some form of 'protection' and that it's quite acceptable in polite society, they're happier to follow instructions to drink a bit more.
