You may have seen the story in The Herald this week about the Cholsey lady living in SHELTERED HOUSING who had a stroke in her bath and wasn’t found for three days.
I am calling on Soha to re-visit their policy on emergency alarms for elderly and vulnerable people. They claim that residents are provided with alarms if they want or need them. Well surely you only need an alarm when you need an alarm – as this case proves!
Rather shockingly the Soha spokesman seems to be claiming credit for the fact that it was one of their employees who found the woman – AFTER THREE DAYS.
I think Soha are lucky not to have a Staffordshire style enquiry on their hands.
