We're back on track with my dad's flat.
We addressed all his worries one by one and none of them were difficult to resolve. The worries of an old person who lives alone and has nobody to bounce ideas off unless he picks up the telephone. We all know how problems can get out of proportion in the middle of the night when you can't sleep for thinking about them.
We went to view the flat that's available and it's super. Clean, modern, well equipped and safe. I could live there myself. In fact I couldn't have designed it better for an old person to live in. Underfloor heating so no radiators - which makes more wall space available for furniture. A walk in wet room with access from the hall and the main bedroom. A second bedroom for visitors or to use as a study. Emergency pull cords everywhere. We accidentally tested that they worked when Nick caught one with his tape measure and within seconds there was a call loud and clear from the warden. Perfect.
