''Unable to see my husband in a care home at Christmas.... this might be his last one...''

Added on 10th December 2020

Families are coming to CCFTV saying they are heartbroken when told they won't be allowed visits with loved ones at Christmas.

''My husband's care home manager contacted me to say two carers tested COVID positive. I haven't hugged or kissed my husband for nine months. It's so very upsetting. The home have no idea when staff and residents can start to be tested and now we have to wait until the home opens up again for this action to even happen. I am being told the carers are not showing any symptoms and will not get another test to check if it was a false positive but management have told me that I can have no visit whatsoever for 28 days and so I will miss out on vsiiting my husband at Christmas. I am heartbroken again. My husband has dementia and becoming more and more anxious and upset on every one of my previous visits. On my last visit he was banging the glass to try and get to me.

'''I haven't hugged my husband for nine months.... this is causing me depression and this Christmas will probably be his last one...''

Christina and Peter on their wedding day. Christina says, ''I haven't been allowed to hug or kiss my husband in a care home for nine months...''

The carers saw this and took him away. My husband's care home are now saying they cannot meet his care needs so they wish to serve an eviction. He has lost so much weight and I have been informed I will have to wait twenty eight days to get to see him now and what will probably be his last Christmas. I will be on my own and my depression is very bad. I am in my seventies. I can't go on like this any more. He is my husband and he needs me and I need him. I live on my own but he's still my husband. Why is this Government not ensuring safe visits and keeping loved ones apart with dementia and seperate families that love them the most.

This has been going on too long and even with the testing in care homes nothing has resumed back to being even near normal. I am currrently seeing in the media care home residents and staff now administering the covid vaccine to residents and celebrating face to face visits - this saddens me because in my and many other families reality this isn't happening. Families at a support group say that even with the COVID test families are still being advised they won't be allowed to visit at Christmas and are heartbroken. This is so wrong that the media are showing so much hope when the reality is so very different for so many.''

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is supporting families coming to us saying they are are unable to visit loved ones over Christmas because of Government and LA guidelines. If you are interested in this case study please contactccftv.cares@gmail.com
