Dementia: Honesty and Integrity

Image result for Honesty and integrity picture

The concerns that I have raised with Alderlea Care Home are being dealt with very professionally.  Managers within the home are conducting a thorough investigation.  The Local Authority Safeguarding Team are also monitoring the situation.

When I picked Maureen up from Alderlea on Wednesday afternoon she said: ‘I like this kind of place’.  I echo her feelings.  Yesterday the Deputy Manager told me ‘she is loved here’, and she is!

I have already booked Maureen into Alderlea for my next Respite Break.  They have approached my concerns with honesty and integrity: it doesn’t get much better than that!

Once again I count my blessings that we live in North East Lincolnshire.  When my sister in law raised concerns about my brother’s treatment in Norton Grange Nursing Home in Coventry, she was given a month’s notice of eviction.  Thankfully, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise as Brandon House Nursing Home exudes person-centered care.  Unfortunately, they have inherited the prescription of antipsychotic medication.
