Maureen often wants to go back to the house where we used to live in Coventry. I heard from my sister in law yesterday that would have meant we would have been five minutes away from the Nursing Home my brother is being moved into on the 15th of August. It is a shame we won’t be near to John because my Big Brother is a good man.
The circumstances of his move are unpalatable: he has been given notice to quit his current Nursing Home. The reason is quite simple – Jean his wife has raised questions about the level of care. In the last month or so John has been plagued by oral thrush and nursing staff at his Home have been complacent about his condition.
John has advanced Alzheimer’s he is on Continuing Health Care and is no longer able to look after himself. The price of Jean raising questions about his care: EVICTION!
How sad that elderly people who are not able to speak up for themselves are neglected. It’s a shame we won’t be as close by as Maureen would have liked but I look forward to seeing my brother in his new Home as soon as possible.
