My wife was admitted into the secure dementia wing of care home. On visiting her I became aware that other residents sometimes wandered in and out of each others rooms. Sometimes personal objects may get 'borrowed' such as spectacles, ornaments, photos etc until later retrieved by a staff member. Although this was understandable some residents protested loudly about their privacy being violated including my wife. There was one incident where a resident removed some chocolate biscuits from her room only that resident was a diabetic! As it turned out it wasn't a problem but if that resident had a nut allergy or some other allergy then it may have been more serious. I would be interested to know about the experiences of others who have been faced with this problem.
