Our country will not be happy until they have your last penny !
A year ago I had to put my Mother in a Dementia care home which is costing us all our savings .
The state does not help at all and now I find out that the state will not even pay the care home for any activities or outings ,us the relatives have to cough up even more money so our elders can have some kind of activity everyday.
Young and Old alike need constant stimulation and with dementia its important to try and help them keep what little piece of mind they have left alive .
During this last year my Mother has lost the ability to read and write so something simple like painting or doing childlike art and crafts is something she and the others can still do and they enjoy .But then again the state gives no money towards any materials so us relatives have to donate and contribute any way we can.If we dont give the residents just sit in a chair all day staring at nothing … waiting for death I guess .
I think its criminal as the amount they charge us each week and they cant take a few pennies from that to supply materials.
I know children ,the homeless ,the disabled and the people below the breadline are all in the same boat and I wish our country would step us and be responsible for their own .
I know its not a new story and it will never change but it does annoy me when we have to pay so much into this country in taxes and for what ? It certainly isnt going to our elderly ,children ,homeless ,disabled and poor ! Its 2016 now why do we still have these issues.
Theres a lot to be said to ‘bank of mattress’ , keeping your money out of banks and under your bed where big brother can spy on what you have and decide how to spend it so you have nothing and have gained nothing from it .
Ok thats all as I know people have strong opinions about this same as I have so apologies if I have rubbed anyones fur up the wrong way .This is my personal opinions and my personal gripe .
I am off to raise funds for Mothers care home so we can take the old gals for a day trip to the seaside and fish n chips on the beach .A simple pleasure for them but another non funded activity ,one mini bus and fish n chips x 20 …not exactly breaking the bank but obviously a waste of public funds for the people that have done so much for our country.
Maybe the state would prefer them to sit quietly in a corner and die ,it would free up some money for something else unimportant .
