Seniors report poignant

Second part of an extensive review conducted by ombudsperson on care of seniors in this province has just been released.

The second part of an extensive review conducted by Kim Carter, the Ombudsperson of British Columbia, into the care of seniors in this province has just been released.

Whilst it is a large report it is broken down into sections and is very easy to read. The ‘Findings’ and ‘Recommendations’ are written in such a way that there can be no doubt at all as to what is being said.

The dedication in this report is very poignant: “This report is dedicated to seniors in British Columbia who require care and support and their families and friends. It is also dedicated to the hardworking people who provide care to seniors in British Columbia.”

We must all do what we can to prevent her findings and recommendations from being hidden in a storage locker somewhere.
