Competition and cooperation are not, and never have been, a binary choice for anyone. Obsessing about the merits of one or the other is merely another obsession. Nothing wrong with an occasional bout of obsession either. The problem is people obsessed with telling others that they, and they alone, know best.

You mentioned the two homes were fairly close. These people will welcome the chance to earn money and my guess is that any distance from FengYuan Lu in the north, down to Beichen and possibly onward toward North Railway station would be doable at a price. Look for an operator with a battery assisted vehicle.

Go out into the street at either of the two homes.

Look for someone with a bicycle with a cart attached to the back. They will move it for you and do it quickly and efficiently. I've done it this way myself when I borrowed a bed from a friend to accommodate visitors.

I've had a UK Skype-in number for several years and never once has it been used. Relatives and friends of all ages at home use a combination of WhatsApp (+VPN at my end) and WeChat for text messages, video and voice. WeChat has proved most reliable if only because it doesn't suffer from being interfered with.

The last security update I can locate for Works was posted September 2012. If this is correct, then it suggests you’re highly vulnerable.

Ever since seeing patients having teeth extracted on the street when working in Guizhou many years ago I've studiously avoided dental treatment here. So when pushed into a corner because a Thai dentist confessed to being unqualified to do a particular procedure I feared the worst. It was at least reassuring when the Huiying dentist confessed it would be tricky. Within 40 minutes, during which I nearly dozed off, the job was complete and the care surpassed anything I've had in my life, and all without any fuss.

My one and only impression is that Richland is a cash deposit facility dressed up as medical establishment with actors dressed up as nurses. The 'doctors' turning up late, if at all, for rehearsal.
