Does anyone know of (or where to look for) an English-speaking home carer/aide who can assist, prepare meals and generally be present for my mobility-reduced mother who has a condition that causes her to fall with some frequency? It would probably for about 12 hours a day. Once my mother arrives, we will be looking for a more permanent living arrangement (such as a 'lar') for her, but she will be staying alone in a specially-equipped aparthotel for a few weeks and will need some care.

My doctor has written an order for an ultrasound without suggestion as to where to have it done. This is under the Portuguese system, not private. Suggestions welcomed!

There seems to ne a few options out there for health insurance. Does anyone have an experience with the various popular policies - multicare and all the others I see listed on this site. Has anyone any experience dealing with some of these companies? We need dental and eye glasses coverage specifically.

Hello, I've recently moved to lisbon due to a job oppertunity. during this process I've decided to change my lifestyle. One of those changes is to visit a gym every day I can.     I understand this forum has links to some gyms here but i'd like a few recomendations. Specifically one that is beginner friendly. Easy for someone who only speaks basic portugese and is somewhat shy. By this I mean I'd rather do my own thing. Having it open to as late as possible would be amazing too as I only finish work around 19:00.     Boxing or other physical sports are a possible substitute.     Also pref as cheap as possible. roughly 15-30 euro a month.       Thanks in advance!
