AND MANY CANADIAN PROVINCES ARE STILL FAR BEHIND. Quebec and Ontario included.
CANADA’S BC Health Minister Mike de Jong detailed the plan on improving services such as home and community care and assisted living for seniors, and he announced a series of broad changes, such as the creation of a seniors’ advocate and the creation of a toll-free phone line to help seniors and their families get information or report concerns about a person’s care. “The advocate will provide information, support, referrals,” he said, outlining some of the general parameters. “It will be a place that seniors or their families can go when they encounter difficulties in their relationship with the state, or in some circumstances, challenges that they may be confronted by in private-sector relationships.”
New Democratic Party seniors’ critic Katrine Conroy slammed the government for its approach, calling it a thin response to a serious issue.”It’s been 11 years of seniors being abused and neglected in this province and we have this report that shows proof of that,” she said, referring to the Liberals’ term in office.
I have been posting about the unacceptable seniors abuses in Quebec’s old age homes, hospitals , for 2 years to no avail. The too often lazy, immoral, pretentious Police themselves do not want any responsibility in the matter. Unenforced laws are still bullshit as a result..
