SAR Stanley 2023

A Mandatory SAR for 'Stanley' was published in June 2023 and written by external independent author David Mellor.

Stanley was 82 years of age when he passed away in hospital in May 2021. This followed Stanley being placed in a nursing home for a short respite stay while his carer and partner of 45 years, Matthew, recovered from a minor operation. Stanley had a diagnosis of vascular dementia and dysphagia and was unable to communicate verbally. Matthew was concerned about the quality of care Stanley was receiving during this respite placement and raised these concerns on several occasions with a number of agencies with a view to trying to get Stanley’s return home.

Review themes include:

  • Continuity of care and care needs
  • Strength based assessment.
  • Making Safeguarding Personal
  • Nutrition and hydration
  • Assurance around standards of care
  • Capacity/Market Management
  • Working Together
  • Voice of the carer
  • Escalation pathways
  • Impact of Covid 19
