eventually managed to get Mrs B up to see the respite home. nice small, well staffed, clean and bright bungalow with only four clients at a time able to stay. the only problem is that there are no riser recliner chairs available for Mrs B to sit in. now i like the look of the place very much and we are going to see about a few nights stay very soon.

i'm thinking of taking Mrs B's riser recliner up for the few nights that she will be there for the "test" stay and if things go well then i might think about getting Mrs B a new riser recliner (old one still very much ok) i could then donate the old one too the home ... am i being daft in doing so?

No not really if it benefits you and Mrs B. A quick FYI it probably be worth pat testing it prior, it'll save you grief there

No you're not daft, we donated several things to my mum's care home, they can always use them

Will probably need to be marked as fire safe, but most things are these days. Give them a call and ask Bibs, would have thought it would be fine and it's a great idea.
