I obviously will not name them on here but if anyone wants to know I will reply on PM. My Mom, with VasD, and a few other ailments has been in a NH since last summer. She has settled well and the care is fine but not great. There is not one member of staff with Dementia training but I knew that when she moved in but did not realise at the time how important it actually is. Promised staff training has not happened. In January at a residents meeting it was announced that the home is to stop providing Nursing care and is going purely Residential. Various managers of the company were there and amongst the statements made were..... We are making announcement today but we don't put a timescale on it. We don't say it has to be done by X,Y,Z date. we work with you individually. We wont be serving you with notice periods or whatever to say you will be out by X,Y,Z date. There isn't an end date................................. Yes clearly 6 months down the line the solution will have been found........ We are not saying in anyway shape or form that tomorrow, next week, the week after that people will have to move out. That isn't the way we want to do it.................. So the difficult search began again but a tad of relief in a timescale cushion. Shiny new brochures of 2 nearby homes, with vacancies, owned by the same company were produced but a quick google and an upcoming court case for one made me decide that it was probably best to leave well alone. But now all the platitudes have disappeared and with not even a phone call or face to face meeting (I am there almost every day) a letter arrived saying got to be out by the second week in March. I have to admit to being rather forthright in my calls to the managers yesterday but one squeeked out that this may not be the only home affected so for those seeking placements now or in the near future then be warned. I have found a new build that would be suitable but it will not be ready for 6 weeks but the new timeframe does not now fit and the prospect of one move is catastrophic enough let alone two. Rant over (no guarantees) but the anger will be around for a quite a while yet.
