Case Studies

''Denied visitation in care homes during COVID is one thing but denied a video call is just plain cruel...''

Added on 3rd October 2020

Families are contacting Care Campaign for the Vulnerable distraught care homes are stopping window visits and reporting homes not facilitating video calls so loved ones can maintain important contact

Christine and her mother before visiting restrictions were put in place

'' I haven't seen my mother since March. The home advised me that they wouldn't be allowing any more window visits. I asked why and it was said ''Government guidelines''. The home is a good care home and I don't blame management only the Government. Stopping all contact is wrong and brings on a decline in an elderly person's emotional and physical well being and undue distress to families. My mother has recently become a great-great grandmother and still hasn't seen her two new great grandsons. All the photos of our family and our elderly mother is not in any of them. I don't know why window visits are deemed a risk... where's the evidence to say COVID can be caught through a closed window or a brick wall? The guidelines are confusing and this Government hasn't a clue.'' Christine Taylor, daughter.

Grieved families are contacting Care Campaign for the Vulnerable reporting care homes not only denying visitation but now not facilitating face time contact

Debra and her mother before visititation restrictions

“ My mother's care home isn't setting up FaceTime calls so she can keep in regular contact with her family. I’ve asked staff and been promised then nothing happens. I am worried about her care too. I know the shops, cafes , bars, restaurants, salons hairdressers are all open in Bury so why can’t I look through a window at least to see my mum on her birthday. I keep asking the care home but they keep refusing. I am devastated. Since March I’ve had one 20 minute garden visit, one five minute drive through on VE day and one window visit which was just over four months ago. I am now on antidepressants because of this. I am devastated “. Debra.

Since Debra contacted CCFTV the care home has now agreed to a window visit given to her under ''special circumstances'' and only as a 'one off' visit to see her mother on her birthday

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is understanding the majority of care homes are doing their very best to facilitate safe visits and video calls to keep loved ones in touch. We are fully supporting these families reporting issues making contact in care homes during Covid19.
