Heartless bastards evict 103 year old

A woman of 103 has been served with an eviction notice by nursing home bosses because she cannot afford to pay an extra £100 a week for her room.

Esme Collins, who requires round-the-clock nursing, will be removed from her home of the last ten years unless she meets their demands within 28 days.

Mrs Collins, a great-great-grandmother who retired when she was 75 only to become a volunteer for meals-on-wheels, moved into privately-run Abbeymoor nursing home in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, due to illness.

She suffers from severe osteoporosis and is bed-ridden. Yet officials at the county council claim her needs do not meet the criteria set down for financial support.

Both the council and the care home are heartless bastards. The council should be giving more money to pay for the resident however what kind of heartless monster would evict an elderly lady who is more than 100 years old?

So would they be less heartless if she were only 80 and couldn't pay the costs?

Is it because she is old and can't pay that makes them heartless? or is that (one of) the home(s) of free health-care won't pick up for the old lady?

Not really understanding why they are deemed heartless because of her age and not because of the situation?

They would be heartless if the 80 year old was a frail old lady.

i would like to point out that on several occassions this lady has stated that she no way has any concerns about the standard of care given by all the girls who work there this situation has arisen entirely through the selfish and greedy actions of the owners who have been making unsafe cutbacks for some time if this home is to survive it needs new owners

As per usual the greed of home owners lead to cutbacks that are unsafe for the residents.It is normally only the staff [that are usually underpaid] that manage to keep such places running.It is unfortunate that the people who could give the best care are unable to purchase such a home.Until there are changes made in the law the fatcat owners will pursue any lengths to increase their own bank balance regardless of the hardship or unsafe cutbacks
