As we all enjoy the May long weekend let us think about how it feels to be alone in the world, without help and without the support of our government. Let us think about the care issues that families bring up that are ignored until the facilities get fed up and ban advocates. Let us ask the government of Alberta why it allows retribution rather than the resolution of problems. Let us ask the GOA about how much funding is provided for the care of these defenceless seniors. Let us ask ourselves -what if? What if this was our mother?

Only if you go through the process of banning-of being told you can't see your family member in care--will you understand the segregation policies of the continuing care system. Why is segregation prohibited in the society itself but is permitted in continuing care facilities?
Why are punitive measures selected rather than conciliatory ones? Could it be that the power imbalance present in the legislation enacted by the PCs and continued by the NDP allows for this sort of power control of citizens and their families? Could bureaucratic and political expediency trump the rights of the residents and their advocates? Why is there no mention of the infringement of the human rights of these residents who are being denied the counsel of their advocates when they most need it? Why are government agents and continuing care providers more important than the families themselves?
And how long will y'all silence yourself so as to maintain this abuse of power of the system on citizens?

While we are all busy and occupied with our own families we can still take a few moments to think of Stephen Tucker and his mum who is stuck in the hospital waiting for a new placement. The Tucker family in Grande Prairie have gone through the retribution process. They understand the risks of speaking for a vulnerable family member.

PLEASE SHARE!!!! It breaks by heart to have my mom in a emergency room bed were at least dad can now visit her . A care home in grande prairie has abused my mom for the last time . We are now taking up space in an emergency room while awaiting for a doctor to help us find a spot . The care home today slammed the door in my face as I tried to talk to them. As I had to remove mom s belongings out of there so the abuse can't continue. Dad fought with them for years with documentation and pics plenty of proof to put them under . But everyone turns a blind eye to the abuse and call it un founded . The judge without any looking at foundings or proof just say your banned and any further cost comes to dad? How does a retirement man pay for lawyer fees. I want this banning my dad from the care home for a full year without visiting rights to go viral . He has legal guardianship to be her voice from a court but means nothing . How does the justice system work ? She cannot speak for herself . Please share the shit outta this . Media here I come
