The families of the elderly dementia sufferers who were abused by care workers at Hillcroft nursing home said they did not "take any pleasure" from today's outcome and added that they were still waiting for an apology from the perpetrators.
Because of their illnesses, we do not know how the victims feel about what happened to them, but we do our best to speak on their behalf.
The guilty pleas and verdicts provided final confirmation that our relatives had been the victims of abuse at Hillcroft and this saddened us greatly. The investigation and court case have been extremely distressing for us all and we do not take any pleasure in the outcome.
There are lessons to be learnt from this case and we are contributing to the ongoing Learning Review, which we hope will provide meaningful recommendations and result in changes to the law.
The statement added that they were "still waiting to receive formal apologies" from the four care workers sentenced today.
They also added that it "disappointed" them that Gemma Pearson would not serve jail time her role in the abuse at the care home.
