My nan is currently in a nursing home where she is happy and settled, however they want her moved to a EMI home as they feel they can't meet her needs. It was my responsibility to pick the home, as my grandad isn't well enough himself and doesn't have the capacity, and my nan's two children - one lives in Australia and we communicate through FB, the other (my dad) isn't interested and doesn't live in the area. There were only 2 EMI homes in our local area, one was apparently unsuitable because the waiting list was deemed too long, and the other has been rated as inadequate by CQC. My priority is my nan's safety and wellbeing so I considered homes outside of our area, however they were all rated as failing by CQC. In the end I chose the home which was in our local area because this meant I could keep an eye on her, plus when I viewed the care home, it did seem really nice. However I just feel so awful that she's going into a failing care home, and I'm worried sick something bad is going to happen to her whilst she's there. Has anyone else had this experience of not being provided with any nursing/care homes offering a reasonable standard of care? Sorry for the long post and thankyou for reading.
