One of the oldest residents of Britain was pushed out of the nursing home by the authorities right onto the street in the snow. The woman is 106 years old
A 106-year-old woman has been pushed outside despite the fact that the weather in the UK is now breaking all records of negative values (it recently dropped to minus 22 degrees at night, which the country has not seen for many years). When the Wolverhampton authorities decided to close the Underhill House nursing home as part of the cost cuts, it was Louise who led the resistance. Her 77-year-old son Derek represented his mother in court. In October, speaking to judges, Derek said the move could kill his mother, who is now Britain's fifth oldest living woman.
Louise Watts moved into a nursing home four years ago after the death of her daughter, who was 78 years old. The woman could not live next to her son, since in his house the bathroom is on the second floor, and Louise does not have the opportunity to climb the stairs. She liked Underhill House very much, and she sincerely attached herself to this place and its inhabitants. But Ms. Watts, who had long since become a great-great-grandmother, was nevertheless evicted from her beloved orphanage. Leaving him, the woman could not hold back her tears. And Derek resented the fact that the authorities had not even bothered to wait for warmer weather. They drove the old people out into the bitter cold. Meanwhile, one of the settlers was 93 and the other 98!
All the last residents of Underhill House have been moved to another nursing home.
