Older people deserve better

Yet another story is featured in the paper about a care home not doing its job properly.

It’s shocking they way bosses of these homes are allowed to operate.

Older people only end up in care because they are no longer able to look after themselves. A time when they depend on the care of others to keep them safe.

Staff deserve to be properly trained and given the facilities to look after people with the dignity they deserve.

I know that there are many care home doing a great job and it’s unfair to think they all operate in the same way but it is time that homes put their residents and staff before profit.
