Case Studies

''A' buy out' scheme will see vulnerable elderly residents, including my mum, faced with eviction...''

Added on 11th June 2021

A daughter contacted CCFTV telling of a situation that has unfolded over the last two weeks within her mother’s care home setting of a company ‘buy out’ taking place and on completion of the contract and transfer of ownership, the new Care Provider/company have issued letters to evict the seven, vulnerable elderly residents that currently reside there.

''My mother, Val, before she suffered a stroke three years ago and went into a care home. She is much frailer now...'' Daughter.

'' This is a very unethical and profit-driven ‘business manoeuvre’ that does not recognise the needs and wellbeing of vulnerable elderly people, with high care needs. Furthermore, this ‘care provider’ is executing their decision to evict the residents during a pandemic and Covid restricted period. As a family, we have not been able to enter the building to even see our relative for the past year and a half, so how we will be expected to visit and inspect and integrate our relatives into a new home feels impossible.

In summary, my mother has been settled into a privately funded care home for three years, post-stroke and has high anxiety and reduced mental capacity and requires 24 hour, one to one care. The privately funded care home has been meeting her needs for three years (where previously, other care homes have not been able to accommodate her and her intensive needs).

Alongside this, we have been fighting an impossible system for extra funding from both the NHS and Local Authority to help support my mother’s ongoing nursing and care fees. Our only leverage to ensure the ‘higher than normal top up fees’ would be met by the Local Authority was that she was settled and being cared for well and to evict her from a secure and settled care home to a cheaper and unknown alternative care home would be very detrimental to her mental and physical wellbeing.

It isn’t ethical and I’m not certain it is even legal and we feel very strongly about the treatment of the residents at the hands of a company who are supposed to be in the business of providing quality care to the old and the vulnerable. Is there any advice you can offer us or a legal position that we should be taking to prevent them from evicting our family member and the other residents? ''
