Indoor Yuccas Dying Fast - please help!

Posted: 04/12/2014 at 13:36

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.

It's a big worry......

But the problem is that they've got to the stage where their lives impact on ours. 

I think we're the first generation where there are a huge number of OAPs caring for their elderly parents!!! 

What the heck do the government  think is going to happen when the pension age goes up to 67 and we're all still working in order to fund our own retirement?  They cannot continue to cut public services - although I've just listened to one of them saying that they can

Lyn, on a practical note - have you had an OT home assessment lately - there are all sorts of ways of solving the bedding problem (well, making it easier anyway), slide  sheets etc.

........  Some one sent me a little card that said:

The Good Lord doesnt send anthing that he thinks you cant handle' or words to that effect, 

I wonder if he can come and get my mum out of the bed so I can wash the sheets befoore I go shopping, cos I cant!.  Sorry if I offend anyone xx

Oh Lyn ((many hugs)) - that makes me so angry - Ma has said it all her life, and it's the reason she didn't see the need to get her hips done!!!   Now she's virtually immobile, in horrendous pain and doped up to the eyeballs on painkillers which are affecting her brain function (amongs other things) ... I am so so angry when I think about it ... and so so sad xx
