Case Studies

My 90 year old mother was evicted from her care home because she was ''non compliant''

Added on 2nd September 2021

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable receives regular correspondence from families reporting elderly loved ones being served notice to leave their care home because families only raise legitimate care issues. CCFTV supports more families with threats of eviction than any other care issue. One daughter wrote to us stating her elderly mother was handed an eviction notice without any support from her family. Her daughter Rachel calls the treatment her mother received at the hands of this provider "a disgrace ".

"My mother Audrey, is aged 90 years old and has been given the notice to leave her care home in Ipswich after living there for over two years. At no time did management or anyone from the organisation give any indication that she could be evicted. She had a fall on 3rd July and this resulted in a complaint as she fell due to no commode being left by her bed and she attempted to walk to her en-suite to use the toilet. Audrey has Parkinson’s disease and her mobility is not good. An ambulance was attended on July 3rd and paramedics advised her to attend A&E.

She declined to go as is her right, she has full capacity, and at no time did staff say it was policy to attend. On 5th July, after having spent all afternoon with her niece with no issues or pain, an ambulance was called out to Audrey. Paramedics were told management had informed them Audrey was sleepy and her condition deteriorating and she had complained throughout the day of head and back pain. This is all fabricated. On the 8th of July whilst alone in her room, 5 days after her fall, Audrey was given an eviction notice by management to leave by 4th August. The reason for evictions was refusing to attend A&E after a fall. Not signing a risk assessment. Making appointments re-care needs without the care homes knowledge.

Audrey has only ever been asked to sign one risk assessment which I also refused to sign as it was incorrect. Management was asked to amend it and never did. Audrey has made no appointments whatsoever herself regarding her health. The only appointment she had this year was with her Parkinson’s consultant who wrote to her for an annual telephone consultation which I informed the care home or by email. A complaint was put in regarding the reasons given to evict Audrey and a request to allow her to stay whilst an investigation took place. The organisation refused to allow Audrey to remain in her home whilst they investigated. We have now moved Audrey to another residential home in Ipswich.

The care she has received since residing there has been faultless and is now being well cared for with complete transparency and fantastic communication with the family..However I received a reply from my mothers former care provider regarding our complaint. It has not addressed the main issues of my reply regarding the investigation, it is full of inaccuracies, and it is not independent as the person compiling it works for the provider. The events preceding Audrey’s eviction appear to have been carefully orchestrated by this prolific care home group to give grounds for eviction. We have now been forced to contact Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV) to take our mothers dire treatment public."

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is supporting families and raising awareness on evictions happening in the care of our most vulnerable because families say they raise care concerns. We accept in many cases we support notice is served only in the best interest of the resident if staff can not meet care needs and management will work with the family to ensure a safe transition to a more suitable care placement. However our organisation has seen a significant increase in correspondence coming to us saying that notice is only served when care issues are not addressed or families are deemed to have "too high expectations".
