Their 93 year old neighbour lives with his wife who is also in her 90s. She has been his chief carer for many years in order for them to remain in their own home. Some limited help from carers during the day. Husband almost unable to walk. He fell at home on New Year's Eve and admitted to Tameside Hospital. Apparently no attempt was made to mobilise him and no treatment seemed to be given. Now in Hyde Nursing Home and some aids and adaptations have been offered to help when he returns home. Neighbour feels much more help should have been given years ago.
