Now that the hospital SW is involved, Piņa, is she going to help your neighbour make changes to her documents?   Hospital SW are not the same as Govt SW and have the role of assisting patients when needed to find housing and or assist with documents, etc. Many people don't know that the role is different and fear others will think they (the patient) is on welfare or in the case of children fear the children will be confiscated for some reason or another. My own mother thought that having SW involved would indicate they were poor. This discussion arose when they wanted to know something or other related to housing and as my father was hospitalized I suggested she contact the hospital social worker. I had told here that I was not familiar with her community resources.

I hope your neighbour is well soon and can get her affairs in order to her liking.  If she is in hospital theSW could also get a lawyer or of some such person to visit in hospital and get the ball rolling on paperwork.  Sometimes hospital administration have legal authority to assist patients.  If she is at home she could have SW come to her home.  She needs to call your Health Authority - Fraser?  If you feel comfortable you could even phone the Health Authority and say you have a concern.  A ph nurse would come and do an assessment of the situation and round up other professionals as needed.

Pina I hope she can change that POA as soon as possible, even if it is to a public trustee or whatever it is, anything would be preferable to her niece having the right to make choices for her. You are being a good friend and neighbour and renew my faith in humanity :)

I had my semi-annual dentist appointment today, and when he asked about my huge bruise, I told the garbage can story.  He had stopped examining my teeth because he was laughing so hard.  He called in all his employees and got me to retell it.

Perhaps this could be worked into a movie scene.

I just got a Samsung Galaxy 4, and it came with Samsung's "S health" app.  Tracks calories, exercise, and walking (like a fancy pedometer).  You can see how much you have slept, b/c the pedometer function is at 0.  At first it was motivating, but now (3 weeks later) it is a novelty.  I am probably realizing how in active I am the days I am not at work (standing and doing dishes, scrubing the bathrooms etc).  This app is rather basic, but I wonder what the other products do/how they function.

You might find some info on the thread about healthy living/weight/food
