    Having looked to the criteria for those that qualify a PA doesn't according to the list. When you were working in a care home you would have. You can see the list here.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @sallystevo1 and welcome to our online community, how's your Sunday going?

    What a shame, those discounts can make all the difference. I wonder if it's worth contacting the blue light card organisation directly to question this - maybe even via their social media (Facebook or twitter) to catch their attention? 

    Please keep us updated with how you get on, and wishing you and your dad all the best.
