Charity begins at home
The drawing is of one of the ladies in Mum's old care home. Mum was moved to another one this week, closer to home, and not before time. I would have thought it was obvious that even the elderly need more than to be plonked in front of a TV, but apparently not. Even after a year there, I noticed, on a paper in her room, that they couldn't even get her name right. My brother visited a few homes to find a better one and hopefully she will be happier there. As always you have to make a fuss to change anything and I do hope that more and more people speak out about the terrible standards in some of these homes.
