The amount of time, money and energy devoted to long term care problems is astonishing and all we have to show for this effort is paper. When I was at Ruth Adria's place I saw the paper covering two long tables. How was it possible I asked myself that government could stall common sense solutions for decades in Alberta? We need mandated staff:resident ratios--we need complex care planning--we need supports and services provided to mentally ill citizens without insight. Instead of solutions we have been given delay for no damn reason.
What will change all this junk? I guess it will take families joining up together to insist on change. Government will never change anything. It is up to us.

Claudette Leece Someday all these decision makers will be in a position where Homecare or ltc will be a necessity can they access with a clear heart based on there decisions from there younger years. We are all one step away from this kind of care but what kind will we have to settle for
Lore Vass We're with ya there in SASKATCHEWAN!! Melany Duff JordanRondee TopinkaGail Brandon
Wanda Wiger Such a insane situation why is it so hard for us to try to get support and good care for those who need our parents grandparents they earned the right to great caregivers who are compensated reasonably the cost of living is beyond insane what a horrible thing to even be debating proper care for our senoirs
Julie Ali They have earned the right to safe and competent care but they won't get this care until citizens join up with workers like these AUPE workers and reveal the problems created by short staffing, lack of training and profit driven service delivery.

Myra Findlay Health care for seniors should be a priority.
More workers are needed. Shortness of staff
Leads to neglect. These are the backbone

Of this Country. Remember you all get old
And if not repaired you could be next to
Suffer.
Julie Ali We have enough reports and studies done in Alberta to indicate the problems in the care of our most vulnerable seniors and handicapped citizens in the continuing care system. But unless folks hear about the problems, change will not happen. A public reporting system that mandates reporting of care non-compliances is required so that abuse, death and failures to provide services as per the standards is available to citizens as public information. Without such a transparent reporting system citizens think the situation in continuing care is satisfactory. The situation is not satisfactory but without the public getting this information we won't have any action taken by the GOA.
