The husband of a woman with Alzheimer's disease is fighting to stop his wife being forced out of her home of five years.
Terry Brown, 62, of Broadwater Gardens, Harefield, says managers of Cedar House in High Street, Harefield, are evicting his wife, Marion, as they claim they can no longer care for her needs.
He says the Southern Cross Health Care home is a centre specialising in residents with dementia and should be able to cope. He fears his wife is being victimised because of his own run-ins with the new matron, Barbara Manarik.
The row comes as Hillingdon Council is stopping sending residents to Southern Cross homes because of alleged poor standards, although Mr Brown insists he wants his wife to stay where she is and fears for her health if she is moved.
On November 29, Mr Brown was given 28 days to find a new home for 61-year-old Marion, which would have meant moving her, at the latest, on Christmas Day. She has been unwell with an infection and is unable to go anywhere.
Mr Brown said: "I visit my wife every day, feed her in the evening and give her as much company and support as I can in fighting this horrible illness.
"She can't walk or talk but she acknowledges me with her eyes. If things are not right I do voice my concerns. I am her advocate and her voice."
Before her illness Mrs Brown - mother of Samantha and grandmother to eight-year-old Niamh and ten-yearold Calum - worked as a ward clerk at Mount Vernon Hospital in Rickmansworth Road, Northwood.
Mr Brown, a builder, said: "I want my wife to stay at Cedar House. She is being well looked after by the staff but there are just problems with the new matron.
"I'm sure Marion's condition will deteriorate if she is moved."
Tom Cassidy, a spokesman for Cedar House, said the home is not equipped to deal with advanced dementia and there are talks taking place with Hillingdon Council and Hillingdon Primary Care Trust to find somewhere to meet Mrs Brown's needs. He refused to comment on Mr Brown's accusation of clashes with Ms Manarik.
A spokesman for the PCT said: "We are not prepared to comment on any individual patient. Patients' needs are comprehensively assessed and appropriate levels of nursing care provided at the most suitable facilities."
