@anxious annie i joined the rights for residents Facebook group and saw this I’m quite disgusted that they can’t support the people they are supposed to represent. I have signed the petition and shared it with friends and family who in turn have shared and signed. It would appear as is normal we are on our own in this dismal and unacceptable situationIt's all just so cruel, our loved ones needs aren't being addressed.
I've just signed a petition that's on a Facebook page called Rights for Residents.
The organisers are working tirelessly to bring attention to the problem.
They did contact Alzheimer's media department to ask for support to bring the Governments in humane guidelines into the spotlight, but apparently the society replied that they don't publicise others petitions.
Such a shame, as youd think they could work together . I’ve emailed my GP, my mum's, and Matt Hancock and Helen Whately the Health and Social care minister.
I don't expect that they'll do anything. But if anyone is on Facebook please search for Rights for Residents and sign the petition
