Coronavirus: Death of a Care Home

One of the care homes worst-hit by COVID-19 is now being forced to shut down.

At Newfield Nursing Home in Sheffield, 25 people died with the virus after more than 110 residents and staff members tested positive.

Its 38 nurses and carers are facing redundancy following a sharp drop in the number of residents in the home.

“I’m 85 and I’m homeless,” says Shirley Scott, the last remaining resident.

    Its down to the care homes managers. Let me explain. My mother works in a care home, she has worked in the industry for over 30 years. Since this virus happened the home my mother works at have been good at keeping the virus out untill a month and a half ago. They brought in a resident from another home. They tested her for covid but rather than wait for the results they just took her in, turned out she was tested positive. They prioritised wealth over health.

    Now there is another side to this. This resident was 97 years old and she has actually recovered. So either the test was bull** or the virus is not as bad as they make it out to be.

    Care home workers are the real front line workers, coping with individuals who likely will die from this virus. My heart goes out to the nurses and carers out there. The sounds of people gasping for air. It is haunting. Watching an 85 year old lady cry about being made homeless is the most heartbreaking thing I have ever seen. I cant believe what 2020 has become, so many nightmares come true.

    The Government and the Royal Family are behind all of this, theres no way every care home could be effected by this virus without either help or storys of how they got infected, there should be familys all over the place talking about how they were infected and took the virus into these care homes, yet theres none, the Government is doing everything they can to allow this virus to spread, they should all be hanged until dead, all part of there evil fucked up plan.

    Fear mongers! The elderly whisper….this is instant death. It isn’t. 99% recoverable. My best friends work a nursing home. The Mental Health crisis kills more then the Virus. Even nurses who know better talk fear. Oh….and apparently all flus are Covid now. Fear mongers! It shuts down nursing’s homes. Media is Evil.

    Jesus Christ, over £650 every week!!!! I could pay my rent and bills and on top of that look after my mum in a 2 bed flat full time for £2,500 a month! And take £1,200 minimum wage for myself! I think there absolutely must be a lot of money and profit being skimmed off by useless people!
