My partner lives in a residential care home, has been there a year and staff are not even trained to meet his needs, i.e to assist him walking, which he needs to build his strength etc.
He has gone from being in a rehabilitation unit, where he was encouraged to engage with other people, do cooking activities, other household things and had plenty of stimulation as opposed to now he is expected to do nothing all day but watch tv, go to the shop and spend too much time alone.
He is in a wheelchair, has an alarm for emergencies and apart from that above the only assistance he receives is when showering, which involves moving his wheelchair out and back again.
He has his meals prepared but has no one there to help or over sea him carry out making tea, food etc, which he had access to before.
They do not promote any activities to get him to engage in community, as they claim to do. They do not promote any independence, or help aid his recovery,
His flat isnt even adapted for his disability needs in terms of his wheelchair, for his height, except for the toilet,
He cannot reach the plug sockets, potentially risks falling for those low down and others are constantly left switched on and plugged in when not being used because he cant reach them. Cant reach his clothes in the wardrobe, and he has to ask staff to get him a drink of water, fill up his bottles because he cannot reach the kitchen tap or the sink to wash ant pots, knifes n spoons he wipes and puts them away dirty because he has a tendency to need everything in order.
Nore can he access the balcony, that he pays an additional 100 per week out of his own money for because it isn't fitted with a stable enough ramp.
He wont raise the issue because he likes it their and fears being told to leave and doesnt want anyone to get in trouble.
He is not the only resident that has to rely on staff to do things for them that they could do them selves, were their flats adapted for their needs.
I am in a catch 22 situation and would like to address these issues but not at the expense of causing arguments and him not trusting my given word.
