I’m sorry to have to report that it’s been a busy month for bad care stories.
The levels of poor care, abuse and neglect in homes across the country are worrying.
Fortunately I’m not alone in highlighting the issues, and sooner or later people will have to take action.
The most upsetting aspect for me is how avoidable most of the poor care is. Common themes emerge, and if good practice was shared and encouraged, things would be better all round. Sadly in our mostly privately run, for profit, elderly care system, sharing of good practice is seen as giving away trade secrets.
So if you are looking for good quality care always get help and advice.
