I always did the best I could for my mother we lived together most our lives my moms 85 yrs old I know my mother more than anyone I am her daughter I should know. I had to put my mom in a nursing home NOT cause I wanted too but I had to she got a Urinary tract infection had to go to the hospital then they kept her for 5 days then she got weak in her legs and can't walk so then she needs physical therapy It's hard for me to really take care of her when she can't walk. But I had done it before when she couldn't even walk because it was my choice i did not want her in a nursing home. It took a big toll on me cause i had to get her walking again and get her to the rest room. But every time I give a nursing home another try it's been Nursing home neglect. Now my mother is in ICU. Do not put your Family member in a Nursing home especially if they have memory loss. You know why? I don't even have to say it. Cause they take advantage of them and do what they want cause they can get away with it. If you love your mom or father don't they will for sure pass a way! My mothers been in 5 nursing homes and each one I had to pull her out and take her home with me they all just drugged them and her up they don't listen the Dr's just keep giving prescribing Meds My mother dos better without the Meds. it should only be taking when absolutely needed. And all I do is arguing with them. They don't run the nursing homes right. They should all be SHUT DOWN I have not found anyone that was good. They get money for what to kill elderly and shorten there lives More! I have to take my mother OUT and do what they couldn't do all myself as always. Now my mother is in ICU for 7 days! all cause of the nursing home my mom has NEVER NEVER been this bad she has Ammonia and a Real bad Urinary Tract Infection! from this Nursing Home! Should be ALL SHUT DOWN. Now this is something I'm going to have to live with if something happens to my mom my life will never be the same. "I am pissed angry" that there are Humans that treat and can get away with treating older people like Animals and even animals shouldn't be treated like that!!! I'm not done with these nursing homes that messed up my mother yet! I cry every day I knew inside something was wrong I could feel it. But I had surgery myself I could not be there for her have breast Cancer going on for 3 months now I have not been doing well thinking how can I care for my mother ass I needed treatment myself. I just got out of surgery when this all happened I had a drainage tube running down my chest when this all happened and now it's too late my moms in ICU. The next day after surgery I went into the nursing home Talked to the Administrator the ones all in charged crying upset about what happen to my mom. I told them they think there this place right they are Not I told them if something happens to my mom they will go down. I ripped open my shirt with the tube of blood from my chest and said This is what I been through. I counted on you all here to help me with my mother. And all I can say is what comes around goes around and one day i hope not, this might happen to you and you will all see what it feels like to be me or my mother. and I walked out.
as they did not change her enough.
They are not chasing me for money as they are going to paid they have had that reassurance. I barred them from the hospital and no representative will be allowed at the funeral.
My Mum stunk . her meds were in the sink and when I asked about them they laughed and mocked me. And even refused to let me clear her room until I threatened them with my solicitor.
Hummingbird I will always agree with her GP and Consultant that procedures were not followed by calling an ambulance. they said she could die in there and called me an interfering bitch.
they were rude to her gp and nasty when they tried to ring the hospital. I will always feel that she would have been better off at home with her friends and family and the scheme manager who she adored.
There was absolutely no need for anyone to drop her friends and families for no need.
Mum had other health problems. She had a commode in her room that had not been emptied for days.
Get this: this place near my house is rated by my state as 88 out of 100 while the rest of the homes in that town are rated 75 or less. This is possibly the worst staffed home in the area. I don't know how they got that rating. I think I will be calling tomorrow to the area agencies to find out who the ombudsman is & asking how they received that rating. I wasn't going to report the broken call light but I am going to now that I know he didn't receive a breathing treatment at all as ordered. It won't make any difference except I'll feel better calling. The fact they made mistakes will prolly raise their ratings for as much as TX cares. I would be curious to know which states all these people on here are from? It might change where I want to age. I know it isn't here in Texas.
Mum stayed there independently and never once received any care from them. She to'd and fro'd stayed 2 nights there then 3 nights at the home.
There was no logical behind it. Shewas not hiding anything as I knew all her health problems.
My stunk of wee. When the GP visited her at the home. And as she had bowel disease the GP was horrified and disgusted at the state of her.
I am so annoyed with them as when she needed care it was not provided and it is a dump.
In Britain the statistics show that people last longer in their own homes amongst their own possessions. I agree. I will never change my view on this ever. I would like to think that I could be with friends and family at all times.
Every illness I was around for my Mum and maybe she did not realise the hurt she caused to me and her friends by staying at that home.
