Swedish welfare - from cradle to the grave, and beyond...

They clearly have dedicated staff working in Swedish old folks homes, judging from this tale:

A Fliseryd retirement home employee attempted to make contact with a patient's dead relatives, only to get carpeted by the local head of social services, "This type of treatment is not part of the care we provide", and "it is not appropriate to hold séances on council property".

Fairly harmless nonsense in my reckoning, and I think that it was a kindness, if an essentially pointless one, on the part of the staff member.

Ja, and are he making some contacts?

Alas the original gave no indication as to the success or otherwise of contacting the Other Side.

And since I feel like it, an extract from The Telegraph obit on self-proclaimed medium Doris Stokes:

"Some of her spillages gave rise to sceptical jokes about crossed lines. "He went very quickly," she told one member of her audience. "He was ill for six months," came the reply. "Well, he went very quickly at the end, lovey."
