Why do you suppose someone would hock their belongings for private care when Britain has public facilities for free?
Although Britain has a free health care system, private providers offer more comprehensive services for a fee. In the case of nursing homes, state-run facilities are available and cost much less than private ones. But they are more spartan and offer fewer amenities, such as shared rooms and no private TVs.
They're FREE- and worth every penny. Except to those who get soaked paying for them. I'm just giddy for Borat Obambi to take office and save us all, isn't everybody?
