A 62-year-old TV star, Kevin Whately, famous for playing the lead character in a police detective drama, gave a statement that care homes taking care of people suffering with dementia should be provided with gold standard. He gave this statement as he himself suffered with a similar situation when his mother was diagnosed with same problem.
The Alzheimer's Society ambassador, agreeing to the Whately's statement and releasing the report, said that the care homes should be integrated into a community as there is no excuse for poorly-equipped homes. The report states that 80% of people suffer with dementia or severe memory problems that are living in these residential care homes.
Adults who are to be shifted to these care houses don't want to go and fear reaching that age where they have to live in those houses. They feel fear of entering the care houses due to the ill treatment and the poor services it provides.
Jeremy Hughes, member of Alzheimer's Society said, "Throughout our lives we demand the best for ourselves and our children. Why do we expect less for our parents?" He further adds that there is a need to join hands for the government and care homes to provide the best quality services so that everyone feels that it's their right to lead such a life.
