A reason why I stay in a condo in my retirement.

Here here, I agree..the manager here at my condo calls me or comes to my door if she doesn't see me come or go..as does her assistant.. probably not happening everywhere that's why I like it here..

Just add some adhesive ducks to the base of the bathtub or floor of the shower to prevent slip and fall incidents.

My immediate reaction is ....   did he fall or was he pushed    ????

his cleaner seems to know all his details possibly including his ATM pin and mobile phone.

 

Really? Did you know him and his cleaner personally and also know every intimate details of their relationship?

 

If you didn't then you are speculating as you always do and getting it wrong again as you always do.

 

If you have all the facts then by all means respond and tell the world.

 

If you don't then why are you bothering to post in the first place.

My thoughts exactly. But then, some posters take any chance to bash a Thai, even if they have to make crap up to do so

One thing I swore I'd never do as I got older, live in a 2 storey house, or anything with stairs. Some of those stairs in townhouses are more like ladders without any grab rails.

A clever Thai lady will look for townhouse with the ladders that you mentioned above, they know it's the perfect design for her purpose. Next step is to persuade her darling to buy insurance. Last and final step is to stock up on alcohol in the fridge.

Things will take care of itself.

She said, "sitting down quietly doing nothing I achieve everything".

Before you know it, the TV forum has another case.

For those like steven100 who cannot believe that older people can fall.

 

I am 73, live in a 2 story house and 3 times in the last 2 years I have caught my heel on the stairs and fallen 2 or 3 steps. The last time I bounced on my ass down the last 3 steps and now they creak a little when anyone uses them.

 

The first 2 times I was on my own and the 3rd time my THAI wife was lying on the sofa and couldn't see me to begin with to give me any help.

 

I have an 81 year old mate, living in a bungalow, who has a balance problem and sometimes falls over and needs help in getting up. He has a THAI wife also.

me too.  Here in the USA my retirement home on my shopping list is going to be very easy to get around in. Wide hallways easy for a walker or wheel chair.  One floor.   No stairs, no sunken living room. .Good grab rails in the shower, which itself will be an open type of shower as many I have seen in Thailand are.  Can wheel in a chair.  My Dad could not walk up two steps, and could not step over a bathtub to get in the shower.  No throw rugs that can slip or be tripped on.  Safety first in every feature I can think of.  Lots of good ideas out there on sites for people with disabilities

No, I have no idea what happened either but I can make up as good a story as some you part time Sherlocks, so unless you know or have reliable info as to the truth, forget it.

 

It's one thing to make up stories.  It's another thing completely to hope for some reasonable diligence in the investigation.  If it was my brother, I'd certainly be wanting to know that the popo did more than a quick look at the scene.  For all of us (including a very HiSo Thai in a fairly recent SUV crash), it would reduce the risk of an untimely demise if there was some reasonable risk of being caught out for anyone hatching such a scheme.

I was thinking the same! An unhappy customer comes over for a visit! RIP to his family!

Buffoon comment of the day. Is your life that messed up that everything is a TV detective show plot?

And? How does  staying in a condo protect you? When I was in Patong in a   very busy condominium,  they found one old Finn  several days after his death, only because of the  smell that was coming out of his place. Another guy had been dead for awhile and the only reason he was found was because maintenance had to check a  burst water pipe. Sadly for many foreign retirees, they have no friends, nor anyone who cares about them and so they die and rot in their rooms.
