Some lovely carers but not enough. Staff training poor and unqualified staff left to look after challenging residents . Residents left unattended a lot of the time. Left wet and dirty. Meals often missed as my dad was asleep and he never got offered anything else. Medication missed. Often went in and found him on the floor cause he had fallen. Also he was on thickener as he struggled to swallow with his Parkinson’s thickener was ofen missed form his drink when he got one that was. I am speaking form experience as i was a senior carer for many years. The list could go on and on my experience is of the EMI unit in this home not from down stairs which I believe is residential nursing not dementia. I would not recommend this home at all even when my dad was at end of life they couldn’t get his date of birth right on his syringe driver( morphine drip) and this a controlled drug.
Image 1 unexplained blister which I found when changing him because he was wet.
Image 2 broken bed which was sharp and dangerous I asked for it to be fixed as he could cut himself and they placed a bandaged on it.
Image 3 this was my dad lunch this was all he got for a grown man
Image 4 this is how I found his on Christmas Eve in 2015 he looks like a dirty tramp I was horrified
Image 5 not so very professional paper work look at the amount of times he was found on the floor

British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.
I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
