Old lady sent to care home after fall

MADONNA’S family has made the difficult decision to send her to Rydean Manor residential care home in Sussex.

The former pop star’s nasty fall at last night’s Brit awards was the final straw for her children after a number of incidents in recent months.

Daughter Lourdes Ciccone said: “There was the fall in November when she climbed on a chair to dust the pelmets, and another one last month on a patch of ice outside the Post Office.

“She refuses to use the mobility scooter we got her at Christmas in case anyone from church sees her, and last time I went round the fridge was full of mouldy chicken.

“It breaks my heart but she’s not capable of living independently anymore.

“The staff at the home seemed very nice and caring, they have cake in the afternoon and a weekly memory club.”

Care assistant Joanna Kramer said: “She seems very sweet but we have been instructed to keep her away from crucifixes, apparently she has a slightly unsavoury habit.”
