Baby Bloggers & Mummy support The Edith Ellen Foundation a registered charity (No.1153733), we write independently of the foundation. Together, we believe in dignity and respect for the elderly and compassion in care. We hope together to provide valuable, inspirational dignity in care resources that address needs of isolation, emotional pain, grief and loss. We want to encourage you to be the best carers to older people that you can be.
How trustworthy are care facilities? While care professionals tend to be
outstanding, self-sacrificing, hard-working and compassionate, even one
careless moment can quickly snowball into elder abuse.
Watch this true
First published on YouTube August 23, 2012 - This
is the video that is causing shock and outrage. An elderly woman
struggles to stand, her caregiver not attending to her needs. She falls
hard to the ground - an incident that isn't supposed to happen in a
"good" nursing home.
Though this occurred in the USA, it happens here in the UK and is only publicised when people speak up (or Panorama are videoing). This is the kind of abuse that The Edith Ellen Foundation is trying to eradicate in the UK, through the promotion of Kindness and Compassion in Care and by delivering comprehensive Training.
