I met Mr JB at his office and updated him about the Old Man. Mr JB’s business has picked up somewhat, but he would still like to retire by the time he turns 65. Mrs JB is worried that her job may disappear as a result of public-sector spending cuts.
I phoned Cosy Corner and they agreed to visit the Old Man and ascertain whether they could meet his needs for EMI residential care. The room with the view over the valley has now been taken, but the one facing the garden (which was the room that I preferred) has been earmarked for the Old Man.
