Just a quick one..

Has anyone made plans for the time in their lives when they will need nursing care?

Do you plan to stay in Cyprus?

Go back to the UK?

Its been a bit obvious on here lately that Cyprus doesnt have district nurses/rest/nursing homes in abundance like in the UK, where incidentally you in one way or another would have to pay for your care or its taken out of your estate... this type of care is not free in the UK nor is it here.

I think it is one of those situations where we all think we will never need such care until that sad day when perhaps we do.

These days we can no longer expect our family to do the caring since most of them have to work full time. I looked after my own Mum for 18 years until she died in my arms.

In Cyprus you can get the cheaper Filipino nurses if push came to shove I suppose.

More in the way of aftercare is needed in the Cypriot health system. In the meantime I guess we all plod on with our blinkers on.
