 Seniors and Big Problems

What are the big problems of seniors? Health and money and mortality issues are common to us all. I recently was diagnosed with a life threatening illness and I had to face a new level of vulnerability. I may go on for years and years and I may not. So, same is true for all […]

 National Health Service & The Elderly

It is getting well up my nose that the large cohort of over 70’s is putting a strain on the countries resources. The National Health Service in the UK is supposedly under strain because of the elderly it now has to support.  I hear this many times daily in political debates and arguments and the […]

 A Glimpse into Our World

Yesterday I had a traumatic experience in the ER of a local hospital. I will tell the story briefly and omit graphic details. I went to the ER for a minor medical emergency.
