Everyone is partners with each other--government--AHS--Covenant Health and the continuing care industry but no one is partners with families.
Yet families pay for the whole set up.
Why are we out of the team?
Why are we banned?
Why are we sued?
Good questions.
I guess we're there to pay for the entire deal but be disregarded as part of the team.

Julie Ali This situation of neglect, abuse and death has been present in Alberta for decades but does not receive media attention. Families have to go to social media to provide their stories. When we speak publicly we are sent cease and desist letters to silence us by the continuing care industry members. When we do not shut up we are sued. Why are we being sued when there are audits to prove non-compliances to the standards? Well most families cannot pay for a lawyer and the high costs of lawsuits and so they can't proceed with a lawsuit either for the abuse itself or to defend themselves. One of the rare citizens in Alberta who has persisted despite being sued twice is Ruth Adria of the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society. But how will Ruth do this work alone? Families must work together and with our advocates to speak on behalf of our most vulnerable family members. If we do not speak, if we do not stand up for our families the government of Alberta will always choose politically expedient measures of ending these public debates. Why? I guess it doesn't look good for the political party in power when families speak about neglect, abuse and death that happens despite the so called oversight of Alberta Health and AHS. Where are the audits of these facilities? Why are they not made public? Why is it that the business interests of the continuing care providers trump our interests and our right to know as citizens? Who does government serve? Sure doesn't seem to be the families. Here is Ruth Adria's work; she recently won a John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights Award.http://elderadvocates.ca/category/abuseneglect/

Julie Ali http://www.cbc.ca/.../family-members-banned-from-care... People who say they are being prevented from visiting family members at long-term care facilities in Alberta, but not told why, are asking the government to step in. 

"I was threatened by the physician," said Huguette Hebert.

She claims she was banned for a day from seeing her husband staying at a Covenant Health facility in Edmonton after she asked to stay in the room while he was changed.

Hebert said she wanted to check for bedsores.

Long-term care visitation ban ‘astonishing’: Towle
Wildrose MLA Kerry Towle says her party will continue to fight for Albertans who are banned from visiting family members in continuing care facilities.

Wildrose MLA Kerry Towle says her party will continue to fight for Albertans who are banned from visiting family members in continuing care facilities.
That includes a woman who has been banned for two years from seeing her father at a Covenant Health facility in Edmonton. Covenant Health won’t tell her why despite Alberta’s Ombudsman saying it was unfair and the privacy commissioner saying the woman deserved to know why.
Towle said there are 10 to 15 families in the province who face similar bans but are terrified of coming forward because they fear further repercussions.
“We hear this all across Alberta. We have a situation no different than this in Red Deer. That family does not want to come forward,” said the MLA for Innisfail-Sylvan Lake on Thursday.
Towle said health-care officials tried to intimidate her on many occasions when she advocated for her brother, who was in long-term care.
He was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease in 2008 at age 32 and died in 2011.
“It happens all the time.”
She believed the health-care system is so broken and staff are so demoralized that they just can’t always deal with all the situations they face on the job.
“So when things get difficult, the go-to mechanism is to ban (family).”
She said family members are being banned from continuing care and long-term care facilities whether they are publicly or privately operated.
So far, the Conservative government refuses to help them, she said.
“Quite frankly, even if there was a reason to ban any of these families, there has to be a process to either appeal that ban or work through a mediation process to find agreeable outcomes.
“How do we not have a solution in place to figure this out?”
Towle said Alberta’s new health-care advocates put in place by the Tories can’t help because it’s not part of their mandate. They can only help Albertans navigate the health-care system.
She said Albertans would be outraged if parents were being banned from seeing their hospitalized children, but because it’s happening to seniors, it doesn’t seem to matter.
“It’s astonishing to me that we would ever let this happen. It’s astonishing to me that a lady has to go two years without seeing her father. How is that good patient care? If you want quality of life, that involves your family.”

Monda Osborne This is heartbreaking. What a screwed up system we have, treating a human being like garbage...I believe in karma and I hope all the people who can help but didn't give a shit about this beautiful lady get what's coming to them...I wish there was some way to post pictures of the cruel care workers that did and will continue to abuse helpless people all over social media so this cruelty can be stopped....this shit has been going on way too long....
