“Our mum was admitted to RSCH on the 20th November and then onto Tilford Ward, she has been there 10wks tomorrow and she goes to a new nursing home tomorrow also.
Mum was admitted in a state of neglect by her care home, she has Parkinsons, dementia and was admiited semi consious, suffering from dehydration, malnutrition and two grade three bed sores, we were told to prepare ourselves for the worst and I must admit we were all very frightend and concerned with everything that had been going on in the press and we preparing to keep a vigilant eye open at all times. But how wrong we were, the care on Tilford was and has been exemplary, so much much better than the care she should of and did receive at the care home, mum was not an easy patient, she needed turning every two hours because of the bed sores, she was washed and changed every day, never ever left in her own incontenience like she was before, she was totally immobile and still is, she needed feeding by spoon and offering fluids by straw on a regular basis, let alone trying to get medication into her and all this was carried out with care and attention to detail without any fuss.
The dedication and care of the staff on Tilford ward has enabled our mum to live life a bit longer, which we really appreciate and thank them very much.”
