The timer above displays the number of days between the date my brother was allowed home to visit his mother and me, and today, without interference by Herefordshire Council or The Priory Group. Both organisations ignoring requests and forcing us to only have contact or home visits when convenient for them, denying him and us of private and family life for this period.
Since my brother was placed in the residential home, out of county and against his family’s wishes, his needs have been neglected and he has not been provided with adequate care and support nor communication aids or a reliable phone service and necessary equipment. The Priory Group and Herefordshire Council ignoring, not least, The Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, since December 2013.
The severe restriction imposed on my brother had denied him access to a mobile phone I loaned to him for contact with us, since November 2017 when it was confiscated from him by a carer at H House. Seeing some video recordings, including recovered deleted video confirmed my concerns.
Before this time my brother was not allowed home to visit his mother for some 54 days 2 hours, this due to Herefordshire Council refusing to allow us to meet at a chosen location or provide alternative support to him and our mother and I. Prior to this the longest periods were 64 days, 58 days and 23.5 hours, due to The Priory Group and H House wilfully ignoring a total of 18 of 24 requests.
