Case Studies

Families “battling” to visit loved ones are forced to contact the Samaritans

Added on 3rd April 2021

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is shocked when told during conversations with family members battling for visitation in a care home, they have been forced to contact the charity Samaritan's after having feelings of hopelessness. One mother fought for six months to gain access to her sick son and contacted CCFTV telling us she knows she isn't alone.

''I am a very strong person, but this fight has brought me crumbling down to my knees. In my darkest times, I felt compelled to call the Samaritans because I was scared of how I was feeling, being denied access to my sick son for so long. I have battled so hard and it’s only now I am allowed limited visits to be with him. I believe there should be a government-funded helpline set up just for families in care. So many are suffering alone.

My son has lost so much weight since my time apart from him and he was on antipsychotic drugs during lockdown to “calm” him.He is not off the antipsychotic medication completely. I managed to get the GP to cut out the midday dose, even this and the whole GP situation has been a battle on its own. The GP has never met my son nor the neuro psychiatrist who was involved in prescribing the drugs in the first place and only listening to the manager's description of what was happening. Gaining access to my son took me a solicitor and all the fight I have in me. I am not alone though. I speak to family members also suffering deep depression and guilt. It’s been simply unbearable and if you haven't lived it, you will never know the pain that's been suffered.''

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is supporting families telling us they are left with feelings of guilt and depression over issues with visitation in care homes and have contacted the charity the Samaritans for help.
