Re: Help for expat with husband suffering from Alzheimer’s

Thank you Warwick.
I have a faint recollection of reading somewhere that expats were able to get assistance, but as ever, can’t recall where.

Help for expat with husband suffering from Alzheimer’s

A friend living in Crete needs help. Does anyone know if Allowances are available from the U.K., since she worked there for many years before coming to Crete? The Greek system has tried to help, but clearly a Greek speaking care centre would be of limited use to him, as he has difficulty with Englis...

Re: Covid/Vit D

Warwick, the voice of sanity as usual. Having had a Polio as a child -yes, 1950 - I get really angry listening to anti-vaccine loonies who tell me it is a trivial disease. Try living for 70 years with the effects and see just how trivial it is to try to carry on a normal life. The more these opinion...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

You might find that “plague island” is not as bad as you believe. Just avoid obvious areas like crowded clubs, beaches. Just like Greece in fact.

Re: Tax number tourism and Corona

Foreign Office advice endorses all of that advice. You are able to get flights to Greece by a circuitous route, via Amsterdam, Paris etc, but if you want to travel on to an island, proof of permanent residence is needed.
