    When I was in a care/Nursing home whilst my barotohm was being alteredI was shocked that no towels were in the toilet only paper ones, despite washing being done every day, the bath towels were thin and scrawny,they had no grab rails in the bath room one was expected to use one walking frame. But sopposing a hertofor fit person suddenly felt faint or ill, or if their knees suddenly went’ and they had no walking frame because uptil then they had not needed one?The carpets were so dirty I could not let my grandson crawl on it. The paintwork was old, dirty, and looked messy.I could not eat in the dining area because the tables cloths and table mats were covered in old food and gravy.when I complained to a social worker, she told me it had passed inpection, to which I asked how much had ben paid to the so called inspector to get the home passed.?She seemed totally indifferent. And did not reply.I hope I never go into a home if that is the standard of care.I had to go out and buy my own hand towels.Eunice WormaldNuneaton
