Case Studies

''Our late Dad's care home delivered us someone else clothes and dentures...''

Added on 1st December 2020

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable raises awareness on dignity in care and the importance when residents pass away their valuables and possessions are then returned to the family in a respectful and dignified way. Families often report loved ones prized belongings put in black bin liners and many possessions missing on collection. Iris, a daughter CCFTV is supporting told us how devastated she and her family were when her late fathers' belongings arrived after waiting two months and realised a bag with clothes and dentures in belonged to someone else. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9042743/Family-90-year-old-died-Covid-wait-weeks-care-home-return-belongings.html

''After waiting nearly two months for our loved one's belongings to come back to us and then receive someone else's clothes and dentures is just proof how they treat their residents. Dignity is as important in death as in life and this home has failed miserably.'' Daughter in law

The family say their late father's clothes and dentures arrived in plastic bags 'just thrown together'' but upon checking realised the contents belonged to someone else.

''Our loved one was failed in his care and suffered proven neglect sadly passing away from Covid. To be sent the wrong clothes and dentures is just unforgivable and shows how little the home think of their residents past and present.''

''My late dad suffered proven abuse and neglect in his care and sadly died from COVID in October. We had to wait until now 1st December to see his possessions returned to his family and when they arrived we were appalled the clothes and dentures were not his. When I received the bag I was shocked how staff had presented it - in plastic bags and all thrown together and smelt horrific. It was so distressing how the home showed absolutely no dignity to my late father.

''We couldn't believe how our loved one's contents were presented. Showing lack of dignity to a resident who died in their care.''

I feel so sorry to who these clothes and dentures belong to. I can't image how their family feel right now. I am appalled how this care home treated my father when he was alive and obviously now with the same contempt in his death. When we brought our father his clothes they were presented neatly and in boxes but seeing them now ''stuffed '' in plastic bags is just utterly disgraceful and then to find out they weren't even his, is unforgivable.'' Staff should feel ashamed.''

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is supporting this family and have asked to go public with their experience. If you are interested in this case study please contact ccftv.cares@gmail.com
