Help for old incapacitated Expats?

Recommended Posts

I have come across a sad case of an old bedridden Farang who after 18yrs in Pattaya with a GF, who has bled him dry

is in a bad way.

I have organised a cafe next door to feed him 3 times a day and someone to wash him, give him medication for high BP etc.

So he is going to be ok now.

But I wonder how many such sad cases there are in Pattaya?

And is there a group of kind peeps who will look after them?

There are charities galore for needy Thais,it seems, but what about our own?

Is he suffereing some form of dementia, or what?

Other than having some sort of whipround for him, a quiet word with am immigration official would be the only recourse to any repatriation. And the answers that are given wont be THAT nice, tbh, as my guess he is a long term overstayer, whether by choice or circumstance.

Does he have any family in his homeland that you know of?

Took him 18 Years to learn? Some people never learn--Just allow it to happen...Most of these X-Pats go home a beaten broken man...Meeting Visa requirements etc..Most just dissapear...

I have seen X-Pats eating out of Trash cans...They lost the plot..Save yourself first...

No place on the Planet like Pattaya..Don't let your meat loaf

He was very sick last night spitting Blood etc. In Chonburi Hospital now. But he will make-it I hope.

I cant believe there is no charity to help old gits like him in reduced circumstances. There are plenty of charities for Thais......we should look after our own first.

I think that we do look after our own but they have to be here to take full advantage. I hate being cynical but as hedonist alluded to there are a lot of people in Pattaya who just don't want to go home. There was probably a time at which he could have bailed out easily and returned home but it sounds like he might have left it too long.

 

A person or charity helping him with food and money might be a short term fix but it won't cure the problem in the long term. I really think he should try to get back home. Pattaya the last place you want to be as a farang without any resources.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
