Facility not yet at 100 per cent

Negative coverage or is it facts that have to be addressed to protect the seniors?

Dear Editor:

In response to Thursday March 21 Letters to the Editor Re: Summerland Seniors’ Village.

Negative coverage or is it facts that have to be addressed to protect the seniors?

It is a wonderful facility but, it should be running at 100 per cent protection and accountability to all seniors living there and anywhere else in the province.

If the staff are wonderful and caring on a continual basis why did mom die a premature death?

Why wasn’t dad missed after the first or even second meal? Check out the facts.

Yes there are some wonderful and caring staff but it should be 100 per cent for all seniors.

If you knew us and had the facts you would know what role we played in the care of our aging parents.

The alert pendant is great but unfortunately if you are unconscious it doesn’t help you.

We are very happy for those individuals who are fortunate enough to be in good health, experienced good staff and workers. It should be like that for the whole campus of care.

This is a wonderful facility but it needs great management and accountability.

I do believe Interior Health is still in residential care, that tells me they are still required. Possibly not at 100 per cent yet.

Don’t judge before having all the facts and walk a mile in our shoes.  Then ask yourself, if this happened to me how would I feel?
