What a disgusting council – Tendring District Council is going to charge elderly people who have fall at home £25 to pay for help to get up. How low can they get?
Obviously they don’t know what service is, to charge a person who has had the shock of a fall is terrible. Would they like to charge every one who calls for the police as well? I bet the person who thought of it will not have the guts to put their name to it, I know what name I would give them. I am not scared to let them know what I think and I am 82. If they want to have a go at me they can try. I also wonder if it is legal as well (perhaps there is a solicitor out there who could let us know if it is?)
