When one of my family members recently went into the hospital, I spotted stuck on the locker next to his bed, a piece of paper called the “Locker List”. It was a helpful guide to what you need to pack for a short term stay in hospital.
Out came the mobile phone for a photo (after asking permission first) so I could share it with you and take some of the stress away from an anxious time. We have even gone one step further and made up a Hospital/Short term pack to label everything, so if it escapes from the locker, it won’t get lost!

Often what makes our houses feel like home are the creature comforts that have been collected over the years that bring back all the beautiful memories that have been created over a lifetime.
When moving into a Care Home, it is often encouraged to bring your favourite chair, ornaments, photos, and other individual items with you. Things that will help your new home feel familiar and yours.
Some homes even let you bring your TV or radio, although all large electrical items brought into the home will need to be health and safety assessed first.

Christmas is coming up and plenty of people are all rushing out to buy advent calendars - but this year why not make something a little bit more special for your kids? Here are a few ideas!
A new downloadable guide from Caring Homes explains the latest changes from the Care Act; these changes came into effect at the start of April. The outline of the Care Act highlights what people with different levels of capital can expect in terms of financial assistance. It is no secret that nearly 96% of people over the age of 65 have made no financial provisions for future residential or nursing care.
Given that the process can often be tough to come to terms with, Caring Homes have provided an easy to read guide on how the latest Care Act and its changes could affect you.

On Easter Monday the biggest shake-up to pensions in a generation takes effect with those aged 55 or over granted new “pension freedoms”.
For the first time, pension savers will be able to take up to 100% of their pension as cash enabling them to spend their retirement funds as they wish. More choice means that pensioners will be able to make financial decisions more suited to their particular needs. On the other hand, costly mistakes may be made resulting in a lifetime of savings gone for good. And of course, there is the siren call of the Lamborghini purchase...

Today the BBC launched an online guide to the care system for the over -65s.
The BBC’s care calculator takes into consideration the different systems in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, as the systems have diverged since devolution. Further changes are planned for England in April 2016 and the other nations are also making changes.
Users enter their postcode to find out the cost of care in their area. The purpose of the guide is to help individuals and their carers understand more about how the care system works where they live, what they need to consider and how much they ..
Sir Muir Gray, former chief of knowledge for the NHS, has shared his extensive knowledge from 40 years as a doctor in public health and written a book on keeping fit to live a full and independent life in your seventies and beyond.
His view is that age is just a number and that most of the limitations that older people experience are not caused by ageing itself — but by the way people choose to live their lives as they grow old.
Extracts from his book adapted by Corinna Honan are being serialised in the Daily Mail this week and they are well worth a read – no matter what age you are!
A recent article in the Observer late last year was written by the novelist Nicci Gerrard about her father who had recently died and his stay in hospital earlier in the year. Nicci described how her father, a doctor, who suffered from dementia, had entered hospital in February as “strong, mobile, healthy, continent, reasonably articulate, cheerful and able to lead a fulfilled daily life with my mother”; he left 5 weeks later “skeletal, incontinent, immobile, incoherent, bewildered, quite lost” and in need of 24-hour care.
She does not blame the hospital staff who were respectful and kind an..
