The bespoken team is a little short staffed this week with holidays and so on so we will not be sending out a bulletin on Friday the 20th of July.
All bespoken members can still post content, ask questions and support one another and engage with bespoken during this time. The bulletin will return on Friday the 27th of July.

For the husband who has problems lifting his legs into bed, I use a loose pair of leg warmers around my ankles which form a soft (not compressing) 'strap'. Mine are made from silk so very light and comfortable. I have tried leg lifters but my feet fall out.

Thanks for the welcome and friend request. Hope to contribute... with your help.
Have a great day,
We are always keen to find ways to raise our profile with the elderly and home bound - do you have any suggestions? Peter
