Did anyone see that news item on 6pm BBC news regarding a woman returned home from hospital into exactly the same home conditions as before her admission, i.e. filth and unhealthy atmosphere and no fresh air. Apart from the filthy floors, she had a parrot in a cage (surely a health hazard) and no-one had seemed to notice that her home condition could actually be the cause of her problems. She was described as having a chronic lung disease (COPD?). Surely she is being failed by those visiting her if they can't improve her surroundings to make life better. The end of the story did show that the room had been decorated and seriously decluttered but she still had the wretched parrot! Am I missing something?
