Following my Mum’s death yesterday I went to the care home this morning, at their request, to clear her room.
When Mum entered the sunshine home ( real name camouflaged, price outrageous) we signed an inventory of her belonginings and photos of her important jewellery we’re taken.
Today the home couldn’t find her wedding ring, engagement ring, gold Omega watch, her TV......the list goes on. Worryingly they acknowledged that photos were originally in her file but they aren’t there now.
They are rated outstanding by the CQC but don’t have a procedure or policy for looking after valuables when vulnerable people can no longer have them. I was told Mums rings were taken from her so that she couldn’t choke on them......but they’re not in the safe and no one can find them.
If you’ve ever experienced something like this what did you do?
