The utensils keeping frail people eating independently

Designer Gregor Timlin's maternal grandmother was the backbone of her family.For her, cooking was a pleasure and a joy and she kept her independence as long as possible. But sadly this is not the case for some of the UK's elderly and frail.

About 700,000 people in the UK have dementia, and more than a third of these live in care homes. Crockery, tableware and even the tables themselves are in most cases not designed for the less able. more

Don't feel guilty about being kind to yourself - take a holiday. You need to give yourself time to relax, and to engage in activities that you find rewarding. It is sensible, not self indulgent to look after your self in this way. Doing things you have to do all the time has a negative effect on your emotional health. As well as the fact that a holiday or trip can renew the strength required to carry on in the face of difficult circumstances.

This month's funnies..

Ear Infection. Very funny. One of the best for ages!!!

This is true!

More often than not the doctor's receptionist will ask why you are there, and you have to answer in front of others. Sometimes it is embarrassing.

There's nothing worse than a Doctor's Receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you, in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it.

A 75-year-old man walked into a crowded waiting room and approached the desk.
The Receptionist said, 'Yes sir, what are you seeing the Doctor for today?'
'There's something wrong with my dick', he replied...


The receptionist became irritated and said, 'You shouldn't come into a crowded waiting room and say things like that. '


'Why not, you asked me what was wrong and I told you,' he said.

The Receptionist replied; 'Now you've caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and discussed the problem further with the Doctor in private.'

The man replied, 'You shouldn't ask people questions in a roomful of strangers if the answer could embarrass anyone. The man walked out, waited several minutes, and then re-entered.

The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, 'Yes?'

'There's something wrong with my ear,' he stated.


The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice.
'And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?'


'I can't *piss* out of it,' he replied.

The waiting room erupted in laughter.

Mess with seniors and you're going to lose!
