Am I so angry and pissed off at the council. My FIL has had a letter saying they are stopping the free telecare type service in 60 days due to cuts. He has a necklace and wristband that has a button on it if he's in trouble. Press the button and someone rings us or the medical service. He's a pensioner and disabled. You can continue to have the service by contacting the service provider and paying for it. The letter adds that he could look at claiming attendance allowance benefit to help pay for it. WTF. You couldn't make it up. A letter saying something like they aren't going to cut the poxy grass on the central reservation as often or streetlights will be going off at times to save money wouldn't be so bad but, NO, lets just keep bashing the elderly or poorer people in the country, way to go. A Labour council doing it because it makes the Conservative government look bad? I'm going to contact the council and ask for a breakdown of everything they spend money on but I bet I don't get a detailed breakdown. Mad.
