My mum was in this home for four years . Initially we thought it would suit her,at the time she went in she was fully mobile and enjoyed the activities.
Has time progressed mum had falls ,firstly a major head trauma,then a fall in which she suffered a fractured skull and brain bleed, later she suffered a broken hip .
Mums dementia was progressing but the care did not keep pace.
Numerous times we had meeting and spoke to the manager.
We reported problems to CQC and spoke to social service who upgraded our complaints to safe guarding .
Many times we were frustrated by the lack of even basic care .mum would be wet from spillage,her glasses would be lost . Her teeth would be lost it was a succession of failures .eventually her teeth were lost permanently. Her diet wasn’t changed ,and after more complaining we felt we could no longer go on with the situation.
After speaking to social services and asking to move my mum the home kindly served us with a 28 day eviction notice.
I would not recommend this home ,they state on their advertising repite and dementia, the approach of some staff is clear that they are not trained in any dementia care.
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
Adventure with Dementia provide values-based learning, development and improvement programmes which include life elements relevant to us all irrespective of a diagnosis of disease or disability. Our approach is that of doing 'with' people and not doing 'for' them thus creating family style daily living which is occupied, meaningful and fulfilled while also challenging the stereotypes of a carers role to empower them to do things differently: pledging to make a difference.Visit Website
