PENSIONERS FEAR ENDING UP IN A CARE HOME – A survey recently conducted among adults and pensioners has revealed that 70% of them fear ending up in a Care Home due to the continued reports of abuse and lack of care.
Almost all adults and pensioners are voicing their concerns that the Government is not doing enough to put a stop to the endless cases of abuse by some privately run care homes.
There have been numerous reports of how some care staff abuse and humiliate their elderly patients; with some ending up in court facing charges of serious abuse. Even the Care Quality Commission has reported that one in six nursing homes lacked proper professional staff and this has led to patients being abused and humiliated.
Other surveys have also been conducted, one of which asked relatives if they thought their parents and loved one were obtaining satisfactory care. An astonishing 41% of those asked felt that the level of care was appalling and a further 28% noted that care was of a very poor quality.
It is, in my view, a criminal act that our Government does little or nothing to stop the elderly being subjected to this type of abuse and humiliation. Almost all of these people have spent their entire lives working to support this country and in some cases putting their very lives on the line for our freedom. Is this how our Government repays their hard work and dedication?
When I look at how wasteful our Government has become and how despicable most of them are is it really any wonder they do not care for our loved one. Indeed most pensioners now have to sell their assets in order to pay for the very care they had already paid for throughout their working lives, through taxation.
While our Government appears more than happy, just to appear politically correct, to provide welfare to extreme levels to support foreign immigrants, many of whom are known criminals, this clearly shows the level of contempt our Government has for those who have given so much to this country.
Think of all the scandals and lies our politicians engage in and yet not one of them has any shame over their actions.
It really is time British public took a stand and demand that the liars running this country, David Cameron and Nick Clegg, do the decent thing; which is to step down and crawl back under the rocks from where they came.
I would like an independent survey to see how many politicians’ parents and grandparents have been subjected to the kind of abuse our relations have had to suffer.
