I wonder if it relates to this story, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54408723There is to be an item broadcast on BBC just after 8am tomorrow about care home visits, they have interviewed several people from RIghts for Residents
Mum’s care home have finally had a secure pod created so visits can take place. It’s a small room separated by floor to ceiling plastic screen whereby we go into our side by one doorway and mum enters from the lounge. Dad is deaf so I’m allowed to accompany him for a 20 minute visit. My sister and brother are desperate to see her too but for some odd reason that’s not permitted. I’m grateful we get 20 minutes but nothing will compensate for being able to hold her close. On a bad day she says we’ve abandoned her, and she feels all alone in the world! I’d like Helen Whately MP to sit in and explain to my mum why she cannot be close to her loved ones!
