Mum was BEGGING for a cup of tea in care home

www.itv.com, UK television report, Andrew Harvey

This week the horrifying ordeal suffered by an 89-year-old woman at a South London care home has been revealed. Harrowing video footage shows Edna Slann begging for food. She pleads: “I’m starving – they keep you starving in here. I just want a cup of tea. Have you got anything to eat?” It has been reported that a ten-week stay at Care Home Grantley Court left Edna bruised, malnourished and with an infection that doctors say will kill her in weeks. Her daughter Linda is adamant that this should never happen to another elderly patient. Linda is here today along with Deborah Stone, an expert in care homes who founded www.myagingparent.com.
