Care Campaign For The Vulnerable calls for the Government to stop unfair evictions towards our elderly in care homes

15th April 2019

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable calls for the Government to act on providers serving unfair evictions in care homes when families who raise legitimate complaints are labelled 'troublesome''

Hearing the welcomed news tenants will be protected from unfair evictions by unscrupulous landlords is no doubt a long awaited victory for many private tenants. Why then, won’t the Government place the same thought and effort towards our vulnerable elderly in care homes where families are reporting being served 28 day eviction notice - their only crime is raising legitimate complaints against care providers?. One family approached management about their elderly mother being left staring at a wall with little or no interaction and told us they knew the home was short staffed but instead of bringing solutions the care home slapped a 28 day eviction notice on them - claiming in a heartless letter “we can no longer meet your mothers care needs “. The family told us they had only a month to find a appropriate care home for their frail mother who lives with dementia. Another family told us that their mother was labelled 'aggressive' and had 'attacked residents' - yet their mother was in a wheelchair, frail and partially sighted. The daughter told us ' It was clear they wanted us out because i had raised care concerns that resulted in the home going into special measures. There was no doubt it was a revenge eviction.'' Care Campaign would like the Government to act and bring in a more open and transparent approach to evictions that are currently happening in care homes. Families are calling for a Independant Authority where families of residents can go and raise concerns to why a eviction has been sought and determine if it's fair. Families tell Care Campaign they have no rights and no one is listening - in many cases CQC and safeguarding are just accepting of evictions and many elderly residents face a decline in health when entering another care home.

Care Campaign understands through the work we do, the majority of care providers work with families to find a solution to care concerns raised and if they genuinely can’t meet loved ones care needs then notice to find a suitable care home to match care requirements is sometimes the only and right course of action to take. We, however, can not ignore the minority of care providers using this approach immorally and unfairly . We need to operate a more open and transparent care sector to stop rogue providers exercising this current right to evict because disregard of care concerns result in families being wrongly labelled “problematic “.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable raises serious concerns regarding families who contact us too scared to speak out publicly on ''unfair'' evictions when they compain about loved ones 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
