What would you do if you became aware that someone who claims to have a diagnosis of dementia is being used and abused by a ‘company’ that claims to be involved in the care industry?
That someone may well have mental health and other issues to deal with, and without wishing to disrespect them at all, they are well aware that they are being used.
That someone knows exactly what is going on but they are unwilling to listen to any advice or comment that comes their way. It’s not in their own best interests to do so.
However, it is in the best interests of their own quest for fame and glory. So they are unlikely to question the advances that have been made to them, all in the very best marketing interests of a ‘company’ that has absolutely no previous history (apart from a few failed attempts), no track record, that changes its website almost daily to reflect its latest ‘acceptable face’, but still a ‘company’ that has absolutely nothing to do with the care industry. In spite of the way it allows itself to be described. In fact, it describes almost every aspect of itself on its website incorrectly, misleadingly and with abominable cunning.
A ‘company’, that is, that has absolutely no right to use the word ‘care’ in its online description of itself, let alone to encourage vulnerable people to support their misleading claims and to perpetuate the misleading descriptions of itself. Globally now!!!! A ‘company’ that loves the word ‘global’ and encourages its prey to use the same word.
A ‘company’ that made the first and every subsequent approach to the vulnerable adult and managed to persuade him to go along with their plan. All in the best marketing interests of the ‘company’ trying to devise a present and a future for itself, and also in the best interests of a vulnerable adult who cannot resist attention, flattery and support in his quest for fame.
A ‘company’ that fails, time and time again, to correct any of the information being circulated by their found prey.
A ‘company’ that encourages the vulnerable adult to continue to promote it, albeit via incorrect information sources. All that information remains uncorrected by the vulture.
What would you do, in the face of such vicious abuse of a vulnerable adult who may – or may not – be living with a diagnosis of dementia?
