Did anyone watch this documentary from Chile on BBC4 on Monday night? I’m not sure about the ethics of it but it was a fascinating view of the lives of the mainly female residents of a care home for older people. Someone was concerned that her mother was being abused in the home and a private detective agency advertised for someone in their 80s to go in as a resident for 3 months to monitor what was happening. There was a film crew filming in the home, who also followed the “undercover gentleman”, Chamy.
Several of the ladies fell in love with Chamy who was charming and an attentive listener. No abuse was found - the staff were lovely - but a great deal of loneliness was revealed.
