This is awful. It makes me angry that these companies think that it's OK to make people w/ the butt of cruel and degrading jokes. It's not funny, and it perpetuates against people who have enough challenges to deal with.

Why won’t Andrew Neil on let answer his questions. Appalling interview. What arrogance! She’s got great answers if only we could hear what she has to say over Andrew Neil continually talking over her.

Still unsure who to vote for? Take election quiz & it will tell you which party most aligned w/ your priorities. Use a tactical voting site to make your vote count. I get to vote for whose policies I like best & best tactical vote too.

Great topic tonight. Sorry I'm not there. I suffered sleep deprivation when I cared for mum at her home. I wrote about a difficult time in this post, & provide links to good references/ tips to manage sleep disturbances. Have a good discussion.

Absolutely! Huge personal qualities, high level of skills, & deep reservoir of energy and compassion needed. Staggering that low or no support given to social care workers & very low pay. It’s wrong!

Excellent. I will raise a glass for you too, though I have to come clean and admit it’s not my only motivation for having a glass of wine.

Sorry to hear this Suzy. Yes, we need more Admiral nurses. Like everything else -related, there are insufficient resources and expertise to support people living with dementia and their carers.

Absolutely barbaric. That's what I think about the death penalty, whoever faces it, however brutal their crime. When states execute their citizens, it brutalises all of us.
