''My brother looked emancipated on my visit during the Covid pandemic.''

19th June 2022

CCFTV is contacted by families telling of severe weight loss to elderly loved ones during visiting restrictions in care homes. CCFTV was one of the first elderly organisations to call for a public inquiry on the handling of care homes during the Covid pandemic. Ref, read here;-https://www.carehomeprofessional.com/families-tell-of-loved-ones-severe-weight-loss-during-covid-visiting-restrictions/

Claire, a nurse for over 30 years, contacted Care Campaign for the Vulnerable telling of the trauma she faced when seeing her brother for the first time in a year due to the Covid visiting restrictions and was 'shocked'' seeing her brother for the first time as he looked distressed and shockingly thin. Caring for vulnerable patients throughout her career she told CCFTV, that she had never seen anyone look so ''skeletal''.

'' I have worked as a nurse for over thirty years and seen patients dying and not look so emancipated. I was shocked when I saw my brother for the first time when visits were reinstated. I raised concerns immediately with the home manager and the owner but they did their own investigation so how transparent is this really going to be? Safeguarding and the CQC were not helpful and I wasn't happy with the outcome or the explanations during a meeting with management alongside my representative at CCFTV.

It beggars belief that even though the home state my brother was given fortified drinks etc, I do not believe he was encouraged to take them or even offered. I know families have told me the same who had loved ones in care homes.

I can only now hope the forthcoming Covid public inquiry brings answers to why this was allowed to happen and vulnerable elderly were virtually abandoned because my brother died in pain, scared and malnourished and he wasn't alone.''
