Lovely!  I have a very similar photo of my son at the same age in a very similar costume, resplendent with his grandmother's plastic parrot on his shoulder - he won first prize at the Silver Jubilee celebrations in our village and still regards himself as 'a pirate'

Verdun ((hugs)) glad no issues revealed at xray - and glad you're happier with the care she's getting.  My guess is that the staff are also happier with the change of management and are getting more job satisfaction too.

Sometimes we do have to chivvy friends, family and others about visits - don't know whether it's out of sight, out of mind, or whether there's a real diffidence about what they're going to find and how they're going to relate to the person in a different environment.  Usually they continue once the effort has been made and it's been positive on both sides. 

I'm finding that my parents can't cope with much more than one half hour visit twice a week, or three times at the most.

Indoor Yuccas Dying Fast - please help!

My instinct says if you're sure you're not over watering then it's lack of light - but I've not grown yuccas indoors.  They're said to like filtered light, but light levels are rubbish at the moment, I'd put them in a south facing window and give them as much light as you can and keep them almost bone dry.

Every carer, whether or not you're in the same house as the person you care for, is entitled to a Carer's Assessment


this will look at the practical support you need to enable you to care for your loved one and should ensure that you get the help you are entitled to.
