“Our elderly and carers are ' thrown under the bus...'

Added on 20th August 2020

Five families and care workers contacted Care Campaign for the Vulnerable after being told in a shock meeting two care homes in the Liverpool are now closing due to ‘financial difficulties ‘ and the pressures of “COVID19.”

A dementia care home in Liverpool is one of the two care homes facing closure. Families and staff contacted CCFTV to say the closure of the homes is and 'shock' and elderly residents have been given ''no thought.''

“ Families were called to a meeting today and told the homes are closing due to “financial pressure. Our elderly all living with dementia are now looking at finding new placements in a matter of weeks during COVID. The care home my mother resides in was only built last November. It’s a new home and they’ve had no cases of COVID so we don’t understand why building a new home, one only opened last November if they were under financial pressure. All our loved ones are now placed at high risk. The carers are distraught and only told today in a meeting. The staff said they all agreed to take a substantial pay cut but this wasn't acknowledged. It’s outrageous what’s happening to our elderly and our staff. Why isn’t more being done to help our vulnerable elderly in care.?” Gemma, whose mum lives in one of the homes now closing its doors.


"The care provider and the City Council said at the meeting today (mum's family did not receive any invitation to attend) that the meeting went terrible. Both the provider and City Council did not show any empathy or concerns regarding the closure of both care homes and no thought to the vulnerable residents having to be moved nor the staff. Majority of these residents have complex needs, many diagnosed with dementia requiring specialised care. I witnessed right from the start how short staffed they were and carers put on basic pay. The home my mother lives in was intended to be a sixty bed care facility and also accepting respite patients. I only ever saw permanent residents. If the provider advised they were making a loss the families would certainly like to know why and would a new care facility make a loss when the need to fill the beds is great? I have heard that this building will be repurposed and will never become a care home again. How can both this Healthcare provider and City Council throw vulnerable residents on the scrap heap and not give a damn what happens to them and now evidentially throwing them under a bus. Do they not care at all?. Heads should hang in shame." Suzanne Emmett, daughter whose mum lives with dementia and currently resides in one of the care homes now closing.

Suzanne Emmett's mum who lives at one of the care homes in Liverpool now closing its doors. Suzanne told us '' My mother is devastated as are all the residents and staff. The staff even offered in one meeting to take a substantial pay cut to help keep residents safe and not having to move, the answer was 'no'. What help are these homes receiving to stay open?''

CCFTV is gravely concerned with more reports of dementia care homes closing due to “financial pressure and Covid.” Worried families and carer’s contacted us saying two care homes in Liverpool specialised in dementia care are now closing its doors on the 31st October to vulnerable elderly residents and devastated care staff. The question must be asked, what is being done to prevent dementia care homes from closing their doors ?”. A negative impact will be had on our most vulnerable elderly when care homes are forced to close and many who are already in ill health will without doubt bring on a further decline. We implore this Government to offer financial help and to help secure our most vulnerable elderly at a time in their lives moving home should not be an option.

These accounts are from the families that contacted us. All accounts have been verified and confirmed.
