    Please, do not be seduced by the look of the home, it does not make up for the care your loved one will received.

    I brought my mother who has dementia, diabetes and hypertension to Gracewell Edgbaston for a months stay, for which we paid over £3,000.00.

    My sister and I had to go everyday to feed our mother because they did not have the time or resources to do so. At the time we did not realise that the food we were feeding her was the only food she received each day.

    Three weeks into her stay I had to call her GP into the home, because I found our mother unresponsive and panting (like she was trying to catch her breath) I asked the nurse was she aware of my mothers condition? She said she was fine. The GP examined her and called for urgent transport to hospital.

    The GP asked the nurse on duty when her blood sugars was last checked, there was no record of any of my mothers observations and when asked for an explanation the nurse became argumentative and angry, her blood sugar was unrecordable by the GP, low blood pressure and tachycardic. The ambulance crew when they arrived found her blood sugars to be abnormally high and dehydrated. They gave her glucose and IV fluids. My sister and I went to the hospital with our mother.

    During the night when I got home, the doctor telephoned me to say they do not think she would survive the night and she was not for resuscitation should she go into arrest, because of her frail state. My mother was in hospital for three weeks.

    Taking your vulnerable relative there (Gracewell Edgbaston) is asking for ongoing long term problems to your loved one, that you could never foresee and have devastating effects on all the family. I have a woman (our mother) who is a shadow of the person she was six weeks before her stay at Gracewell Edgbaston. If we could have the time back, we would have carried on with the care we did at home and not take her anywhere near that place but especially the staff who were paid handsomely and were supposed to be responsible for looking after and caring for her.
