We simply could not believe that this would be allowed to happen. Mum had lived in the care home for more than 6 years and was in the latter stages of her dementia. We had been advised by her psychiatrist that a move would be very dangerous given her health at the time. We trusted “the system” but Mum’s needs were not prioritised and her “End of Life Care Plan” was ignored.
Mum was a long term resident and one would expect there to be really strong grounds for any move at the final stage of her life. You would imagine that ALL care home residents have the right to continuity of care and their own wishes respected but this is NOT the case.
Mum was removed on 23rd February 2016 and died exactly 7 weeks later.
