This email was sent by a daughter who is desperately wanting to move her mother to a nursing home that will look after her mother in a caring environment. It needs no further introduction. For obvious reasons the name of the author is withheld and forgotten.
We are looking for low care accommodation for our mother.
As food is an important part of care, we insist that no junk food is served as meals.
And that the fresh food is cooked by experienced cooks.
My mother is in a facility at the moment and the poached eggs are cooked until they are hard as rocks and inedible.
Many of the soups in the facility are powdered.
We would like a facility where:
We would also like a home where the staff do not abuse the residents and they are treated with respect and dignity (eg, my mother was told "don't ring the buzzer ... it's not a hotel" and "if you have a complaint, go and see the cook").
How does an 88 year old woman with dementia find the cook?!
Can you please help?
