Good news (Chris' mum) but less so re Chris' MiL and Carp's MiL. I suppose the nature of this thread is that a good two thirds - at least - of the posts are likely to be on the sadder side of the balance. It makes the cheering posts all the more welcome though :-)

About This Thread

I thought I'd start a thread, as lots of us have elderly folks that we worry about/care for.

Also: After someone dies, if their home insurance was only in their name, sadly the cover becomes void. But if the policy was in joint names, it will still cover the surviving policyholder (though the names on the policy will need to be updated).
