"When we spoke about using this home with the staff, they assured us that the residents got a fresh fruit smoothie every day, got porridge made with cream etc.
My mother is quite vocal as a result of her vascular dementia. Because of this, her bedroom door was closed and she was left to her own devices. Once in a while, they opened up to give her her porridge, which looked like grey plaster.
On one occasion she had been given a sedative and with some persistence, the nurse admitted that this was the case.
A lot of her belongings, such as covers, slippers, underwear went missing. No one seemed bothered.
I really don't know what the fuss is about when you mention this care home. It's clean and tidy, but there is an undertow at work, I feel. I don't like it. I like the staff even less."
