“When my mother went into the lock, she went and talked. She can’t do both now. I’m not allowed to see her. Only 1 member of each family can go, the same every time. You want to know why I’m so angry, she hasn’t even got the vaccine! Neither have the brilliant indefatigable caregivers I cried today when I found this out! @UkgovofficialWhat are you playing? They said nursing homes are priority I haven’t seen my mom in months and I don’t have one Idea if she’ll even know who I am when I do Sort this out “

“We had a whole conversation with her because my dad passed away last April and we called her about it and had a wonderful hour of wonderful conversation, but four months later she couldn’t walk, talk and they gave her Mushed food

“For me it was because she was there around the clock when the caregivers came by in each room instead of putting them in the front room where they are with other people, where they are stimulated”

Following the announcement that nursing home residents in England from the 8th Married to March, pick a person she visits regularly, Ruthie added, “When you get a cross-flow test, a PSA, and a temperature test, the risk is so small compared to the risk of people dying.”

“I see my mom die out of a window and I’m sorry to get so emotional I can’t figure out what the government is saying half the time

“In the years to come we will look back on this and that people in nursing homes who cannot see their loved ones and we will think about how we allowed this to happen ?!”
