73-year-old Ylenia Angeli shared the shocking moment of her visit with 97-year-old mother Tina Thornborough after sharing concerns about her mother's health with caregivers
In the shocking video posted on Facebook on Saturday, a concerned Ylenia told a caregiver she feared for her mother's health that her lips were blue and her breathing was too fast.
"We're still in the same situation," she said. "My grandmother is locked in the nursing home and we can't get her out." Government guidelines are not enough – nursing homes still keep their doors closed.
“I think the problem is that power has been given to the wrong people and that power has risen into their heads.
“See how some of these nursing home workers treat residents! These so-called carers exercise the power that has been entrusted to them.
“Right now there is a terrible lack of leadership everywhere – from government to nursing home managers. We are guided by fear, not love. People hide behind rules and regulations instead of doing what is right as a person.
Ylenia Angeli cracked when she arrived with daughter Leandra for her last "window visit" in the nursing home in front of the new lock (previously shown together).

Leandra continued to rage against the lack of training carers receive, claiming the carer who spoke to her mother had "no human skills at all".
“Most nursing home workers have a minimum wage, they receive a minimum level of education, and they have a complete lack of communication skills. Did you see the caregiver talking to my mother while visiting the window? No human ability at all.
“I think the nursing home problem could ultimately eliminate the corruption. What happens in nursing homes illuminates everything – the deception and the corruption.
What are the rules for visiting nursing homes?
As of December 2, regulations stipulated that visits should be supported and facilitated wherever it is safe to do so according to government guidelines.
All nursing homes – regardless of level – and except in the case of an active outbreak – should attempt to enable:
- Indoor visits where the visitor was tested and given a negative result
- Below, outdoor visits and "screened" visits
Nursing home managers are best placed to decide how visits should take place in their own environment in a way that suits the needs of their residents, both individually and collectively.
In all cases, it is important that the visit is in a broader care home with robust Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) measures, including ensuring that visitors follow (and are supported) best practices with social distancing, hand hygiene and personal protective equipment ( Use PPE.
"People may disagree about wearing masks and animal systems, but EVERYONE agrees – without a doubt – that what happens in nursing homes is wrong and inhuman."
In the video posted on Facebook, the caregiver said to Ylenia, "She is smiling" after expressing concern about her mother's pale and sunken appearance.
"Can I tell you for the record," Ylenia said, "her color is very bad, she's pretty blue around the lips and her breathing is pretty fast and for me that's a cause for concern."
"As I said, we had no concerns," replied the supervisor.
"I know, but you never worry about her," Ylenia argued back window.
"I can only suggest that you call on Monday morning," replied the supervisor, whereupon a desperate Ylenia said: "It's two whole days!"
"Like I said, I'm not the manager," replied the supervisor.
Ylenia tried to answer, but the caregiver spoke of her as she raised her concerns before immediately tossing her mother away and closing the blinds on her face as he begged, "Wait a minute, don't take them away, Don." don't take it away, don't take it away you b ***** & # 39 ;.
Share the heartbreaking video, Leandra stated that her mother had paid for a private test to visit her grandmother but still couldn't see her due to the guidelines of the nursing home and agreed to an "inhuman" window visit.
Leandra wrote: & # 39; New guidelines, right? We can all see our loved ones if we test negative, right?
On December 2nd, my mother asked for a personal visit and said, "We don't have any tests." Don't worry, my mother replied, I'll take care of one.
The next day after she was tested, she emailed a negative test result. This was answered with another no: "We are waiting for vaccinations before a visit can take place".
The only option? Another inhuman window visit. Today, at the end of her 10 minute "visit", my mother knelt on concrete by the window and tried to connect to my Nan. She expressed concern to the nurse about how my nan looked. This is the answer she was greeted with …

“Social welfare needs a revolution. How we take care of our elderly says a lot about who we are as a society. The way we take care of troubled relatives also says a lot. & # 39;
