I just wanted to respond to Mr Powell's comments.
Firstly, the British Government has a great deal of money at hand, but public spending is not prioritised to benefit the elderly.
Secondly, and very sadly, there are frequently unqualified, or poorly qualified staff working in nursing homes. One... Read more reason for this is that caring for the elderly is not attractive to many, and secondly, the least qualified staff cost substantially less. Unfortunately it is also the case that many staff do not do this job because they care, but because they need the money and are not sufficiently qualified to work elsewhere.
This is a global problem, and often worse in private institutions that are motivated solely by profit. But it also needs to be said that there are frequently diamonds slaving away in these places. They go unnoticed because the negative aspects of such places stand out foremost in our minds.
I'm so sorry to hear of your experiences Ian - it is so painful to think of one's elderly parents being treated so abysmally. Show less
Understaffed and the staff that are there never seem to be particularly bothered by the welfare of the clients. One of my relatives spent some time there in the intermediate care unit and no one seemed liked they cared about his rehabilitation. They were just happy for him to sit there in silence.... Read more
No one could tell us anything about his physio and how he was getting on. Several times when we visited him he told us that he had been buzzing for ages to use the toilet. When we asked staff any questions they just snapped and said they didn't know. I know it is NHS and so budgets are always tight, but why go into that profession if you have no interest in the well being of the patient. Every time I was there visiting I just felt angry every time I left because no one seemed to care or was even interested in telling us about the progress of my relative.
There are one or two members of staff that are friendly and generally the place is clean and tidy, it was just the lack of care of interest that was given.
I really would not recommend this place to anyone. The sooner he was out of that place the better. Show less
