''Mum's 90th Birthday... and we weren't even sent a video or a photo of her special day ...''

Added on 19th October 2020

At Care Campaign for the Vulnerable we understand care homes celebrate elderly residents birthdays and anniversaries making it very special for them. We are regularly sent videos and photos of care home staff celebrating these special occassions and we know how important these gestures are now during Coronavirus as families and friends are unable to visit. A daughter came to CCFTV distraught when her mother's care home did not as promised, send her family a video or a photograph to mark her 90th birthday calling it ''heartbreaking.''

''This photo was taken on my mum's 85th birthday. Her family booked a room and we arranged a really nice party for her. She was diagnosed with Alzheimers when she was eighty years old and I cared for her myself until she fell and broke her hip just after her 85th birthday. A year later we sadly had to place her into care.''


''I was denied a window visit so I video called my mother at approximately 4 pm. I saw her cards I had dropped off in the morning still unopened, no candle on her cake or flowers placed in a vase sent to the home early in the morning. It looked like the day was treated as any other day. I asked the staff to take a little video but they didn’t. I have nothing as a keepsake of my mother’s special day and it’s evident she wasn’t made a fuss of. The home even advised they couldn't light my mother's candles on her cake inside the care home due to 'health and safety'.

''I was told by staff my mother's candles had to be lit outside the care home due to 'health and safety. It was raining all day and no staff member sent me proof that this was even attempted. I couldn't believe what I was hearing''

My mother was served 28 days notice and told she had to leave her home due to her now requiring nursing care. I’ve sent a complaint to the senior mangement regarding not being send a photo and a video as they promised but we've heard nothing back as of yet. Her family is upset and especially during Covid as we can’t see her. I have seen so many care homes on social media make a fuss of elderly residents with blowing out candles and cutting the cake and sending loved ones photos, videos and keepsakes. My mum has always had her birthdays made very special by her family and we are appalled the care home in the least didn’t send us a picture on her 90th birthday. How any care home can claim to ''care'' and treat an elderly resident with little thought and low regard especially during these times is truly shocking.''
