Hello everyone, I have written a couple of times on this forum, it always seems to be with bad news. My father is in the advanced stages of dementia and we had suspicions that certain care workers in the home that he is in were not shall we say, in it for the right reasons. I wrote about this a while back so I won't go into details but we recorded two care workers abusing my dad. These individuals have since being banned from working with vulnerable adults and the local authority who investigated this have now 'closed' the case. Here's my point, we never received an apology. I was under the impression that this sort of thing with the recording that I have would be very damaging for the care home and holding company in question. Why is it that everything has gone silent? There were multiple problems with the care home (still are) and we kept a diary of everything from being put to bed at 4pm, being left in dirty pads, not drinking enough fluid, being dressed in other peoples clothes.... (I could go on). The council suddenly found the extra funding to put my dad in a better care home and in November 2014 he was moved. Since this date we have heard nothing from the Council or his previous care home. During my dads abuse in his old care home his dad (my grandad) died; watching someone with dementia grieve is incredibly difficult as the stages get muddled up. For the sake of my dad, the other residents in the old care home (who don't have family) and my granddad I want to shine the light on this case and go public. I would like an apology from the care home owners, I would like to tell my story on behalf of my dad and my mum with the intention of making such a massive wave that things in his old home would change forever. I would also like to draw the tax payers attention to the Council and how useless they are - we see a lot in the press about vulnerable children but my suspicion is that many vulnerable adults are slipping through the net due to local authorities inability to safe guard. My granddad would be turning in his grave and would want me to fight the corner of those who don't have the strength to do so. This situation has sucked the life out of my mum who cannot move on and she now mistrusts everyone who comes near my dad. So..... how can I/should I do this? If I do do it I want to do it in a way that does not jeopardise this new equilibrium we have. I just feel that this needs to be addressed. Thanks.
