#MediaAttention--#SocialMediaChangesEverything--Debbie Benson This is the single most important issue for seniors in care , we all need to stand 100% behind this family as they have opened a big can of issues that need to be addressed !! Not one more person should have to suffer , because no one stood up for them !! This family needs to be proud of fact they are standing up to a pathetic system ! Be strong and fight this on !! Your voice can help many of people now and in the future !! I don't work in a care centre but I work in a similar situation , and I have been an eyes and ears to a few people !!

A VERY SAD DAY YESTERDAY!! Thanks to our justice system and to a care home in grande prairie Alberta . My dad was forced to go to court yesterday only to have him and my mom seperated once again due to my dad being my moms voice . The home banned my dad to be allowed on the property for a full year as we know it now. All my dad did was protect mom day in and day out of the non care she was missing at the home of missed food feedings catheter plugs for nine hrs and the list goes on and on with plenty of pictures and documents to back it up . All I want from this post is for it to go viral to stop the abuse in homes and to stop the banning of partners because they are there only voice in a lot of situations when the victim cannnot speak or move for herself. Please share this post and any help we can get to reunite my mom and dad would be apprieated . They don't deserve this as our justice system is so messed up .so the latest news at the hospital is that they will not hold her at the hospital and will be forced to take her to the care home that abuses her or to the apartment dad lives in !!how wrong is this

Tracey Wilmott So sad to hear this...❤️

La Boss Sounds like just what they need, Linda. ..this situation is so wrong in so many ways, it's ridiculous.
La Boss As already stated, they may want to seriously consider contacting CTV, or other media.. .because often they investigate some of these 'suspicious' nursing home situations, and the nursing home in question may change their tune if the media was involved. ..and yes, as someone else asked, what nursing home was this? .. .people considering using this home should have some sort of prior warning.
Cher Morine My husband has my permission to kill me instead of putting me in a home since it would be more humane- should I ever be in need of nursing home care.

Good luck

Charlotte Waldroff Ok don't go to the Ombudsman. Lol
Kelly Napier Self managed care.... please look into this...where YOU hand pick the caregiver/caregivers for your loved one.....'X' amount of dollars is provided to YOU to hire someone to do the caregiving and mom and dad cane be together. Also contact PPIC it is the ombudsman for Healthcare in Alberta.

Julie Ali This is why nurses do not report abuse. Another nurse got slammed by her own nursing association.http://www.cbc.ca/.../carolyn-strom-appeal-grandfather... Sask. nurse to fight $26K fine for Facebook comments about grandfather's care
Saskatchewan Registered Nurses' Association found Carolyn Strom guilty of professional misconduct

Pat Poulin-Tobiasen This is sad.....I remember in the 60's this happened in a care home I worked in for awhile. Karma came and the owners and neglectful staff got shut down and their licence banned for life.
Julie Ali Doesn't happen in Alberta.
Gloria Coles That's so sad this actually happens.

William Pratt These homes are protected by the provincial government & allabuse is covered up by the home care people & government. That's a big hill to climb
Julie Ali You got it. And when all else fails the continuing care provider sues the family to hide all the dirty secrets of the system. It is a battle to get any information and the government just retains any audits it feels would harm third party interests. It is a real problem.
Ann Beckingham This is outrageous! My heart goes out to your mom and dad. Shared!
Carol-Ann Rutberg Put a hidden camera in her room so you have proof and hopefully that will help legally
Marg Rice I think this was already done and witnessed a care giver spraying a body spray in her mouth along with other abusive acts.....then people wonder why this family is so fed up with people who should be helping them.

Cp Desjarlais I love taking care of people in need of a caregiver. My last client was my mother-in-law, she's passed on now. I miss her dearly everyday. Prayer's for you and your family. Wish i could help.........
Sonia Myers Lopez Nunez The justice system over there is crazy,how can they do such awful things to family,I thought Canada was a place to keep family together.,seems I was wrong,even ja it is better .


SHARE SHARE SHARE--Retribution should not be happening when family members advocate for care needs of family members who cannot speak for themselves. Why are the NDP folks in government failing to amend the Trespass to Premises legislation to require an independent appeal process for citizens? Why? I guess the NDP folks don't care about families. They are the NDPCs who understand that a big hammer is needed to silence the most caring family members. But will this hammer work now with social media changing everything?
