Case Studies

Our loved one has lived in his care home happily for six years - now served a 28 day eviction notice due to his ''behaviour''...

Added on 6th August 2020

A family contacted Care Campaign for the Vulnerable telling us their loved one lived happily for six years in a care home but now faces a 28 days eviction notice due to his 'behaviour'.

''Our loved one has been served a twenty eight day eviction notice on the grounds of his ‘behaviour’. Alan's' behaviour' if it has changed, is only since the new appointment of the home manager. Alan has been living in his care home for nearly six years and happily. I was informed he allegedly assaulted a resident on the 15th of July. Then told he upset and ‘frightened ‘ the home manager on the 16th of July. I asked for evidence of this and was asked why did we need the evidence? The care home stated Alan has mental capacity. I asked why then haven't they informed the police regarding this assault?

''For six years Alan has lived in this care home happy - a manager was appointed a year ago and since then issues keep arising in his care''.

The social worker contacted me saying the home found 'nine tins of empty alcoholic beverages' outside Alan’s door. When I questioned the manager her reply was, she didn't know about this but raised it with the social worker by sending an email. We question how could Alan consume 'nine tins of beer' as someone who is an insulin Type 1 diabetic and refuses his insulin at times - this surely would place him in a diabetic coma? The care home manager didn't know about any of this when asked and wasn’t aware until the social worker informed her and so our question is are vulnerable residents checked on?

''The manager told me Alan had mental capacity... she shouldn't make that judgment - she's not a doctor''.

We have asked for a mental capacity assessment for Alan on the 10th of August 2020. Alan has been in residential care for eighteen years and we are not happy with the lack of evidence around these allegations aswell as lack of duty of candour to his family. Alan has been happy for over six years in this care home and is now facing eviction by this manager on what to us is unfounded allegations against him''.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is supporting this family. We have contacted the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who have raised these concerns with the Care Provider's Head Office Complaints Team. We are awaiting a response.

If you have an interest in this case study the family have given CCFTV permission to forward on their contact details. Please email us at
