Avon Cliff care home This case is much closer to home; in fact it is Just round the corner from us and had always been considered one of the most expensive and smart care homes in Vermouth. This case caused quite a lot of gossip around the local care community, but in its way is no different to Wintergreen, Just because it was money and no violence was involved does not make the case any less more terrible, in fact in many ways it is worse.The manager took the residents money to help herself out of financial problems, I am not sure how it was discovered, but in one article it mentioned that the manager had or did or was receiving treatment at SST Ann.’s hospital for mental problems, well, first if this is an ingoing problem how did she get the Job, if she’s receiving treatment now it’s obvious its only because she was find out, let’s be honest, if she had not been found out it would probably still be going on, the amount taken were constant but small, small enough to say that the resident had been mistaken or had spent it or lost it, something like that really makes fools of the residents and puts them in a horrible position where no one believes them, immediately people would stereo-type the residents. E.
G. Or old Mrs….
… Lost some money. Mrs..
….. Always thinks she has more money than she has, and so on, this is terrible, imagine how that resident feels, when no one believes them, it must also be difficult for the families, the home is so very smart and beautiful it would be hard for anyone to imagine that there family members money was being stolen. I am glad that the case went to court , the manager deserves to receive a sentence that reflect how serious it is to steal an elderly, poorly persons money, and also a resident who is on your care and one who depends on you to insure their life remains as comfortable ND as safe as they only deserved.A case like this would be difficult for the staff to understand, they would probably find it difficult to blame their manager of theft but one again I believe that more intense training on how to look for sighs is needed, to help us careers make a decision and feel strong enough to report our finding, whilst blowing is a very sensitive thing and of course staff became scared of saying anything, but more must be thought to us on how to prepare any findings, I know that all cases of abuse sent to care direct must be investigated by them, but it is not always immediately and usually discussed with the management first , which in this particular case would of probably been handled by the manager herself, who also would know how to protect herself.
Case of abuse at Wintergreen…
I looked up at Wintergreen and from the start found the whole thing absolutely terrible, the residents were not protected at all, it was like the staff had been taken over the whole place and were running it Just as they wanted by using fear, cruelty and violence, it made my blood run cold, I also found it very interesting that the men ho originally reported the whole thing does not seem to of been believed and that until he was actually able to film the goings on, no one believed him, why was this? Why would anyone make up something so terrible… I feel very sorry for the man who people working there, because they were scared did not speak up and support him. This I think is the problem with weightlessness, lack of support for those who actually do it.It’s almost like they are the bad person for reporting it.
Reading trough the articles the type of abuse were very very bad, and to think that those poor people very day had to wake up feeling scared is a very bad thing, that there family thought they were receiving wonderful care but really were treated worse than animals. We all take courses in adult protection and are taught the different types of abuse, I think that we should receive more education on how to be able to read through the lines as to how to identify any small signs that people are being abused, I think there must be many things that would give us a clue, and that could makes us aware that something is going on.I hope that something like Wintergreen does not happen gain but I really feel that this is probably happening a lot, in different places. The people doing the abuse seem to become like gods, who feel that they are in control, maybe they have personal problems or their own but there is no excuse for behavior like this. Personally I think it is Just a feeling of power over weak, poorly people that are attractive to them and I would not care or accept that they had their own problems. They were all younger, healthier and supposedly trained staff.
This also shows that even with a crab and references it is impossible to discover people characters.
