Elderly abuse?

Mom went to visit my grandpa and sent me this. That’s how he looked when she showed up there.

They are saying nobody hit him, he didn’t fall. He’s non mobile and not on blood thinners.

What are they hiding?

    Elderly skin is very fragile, I’ve seen turning in bed cause bruising the slightest rub etc can cause this as well as skin tears ..get all the facts before posting on social media..RPN’s and PSW ‘s are running to take care of loved ones with no washroom breaks ..lunches or even a drink of water..very short staffed.

    Your family needs to ask more questions. At the very least it should have been documented what staff member noticed this bruising first, and when. That bruise is not brand new as it looks as though some healing has taken place around the perimeter. Ask questions until you have some answers, or more questions. Talk to whoever you need to in order to find out the details. If something is off, then report it.

    As Canada’s baby-boom generation ages, aggregate health care needs will rise. Despite an increased desire to age at home, long-term care facilities will continue to be part of the solution. As such, Canada will face a significant increase in demand for long-term care over the coming decades. In this report, we generate a demographics-driven forecast of the boost in demand by projecting long-term care utilization rates by age group and combining them with The Conference Board of Canada’s detailed national and provincial demographic forecast of the Canadian population. After accounting for efforts to shift more long-term care into individuals’ homes, we estimate that, by 2035, Canada will need an additional 199,000 beds in long-term care facilities. This represents a near-doubling of the current stock of 255,000 beds

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Sizing Up the Challenge: Meeting the Demand for Long-Term Care in Canada At a Glance • Canada will need an additional 199,000 long-term care beds by 2035, nearly doubling current long-term care capacity. • These new beds will require approximately $64 billion in capital spending and $130 billion in operating spending between 2018 and 2035 (all figures in 2017 dollars). • This investment and spending will have positive effects on the economy, contributing a total of $235 billion to real GdP and supporting an average of 123,000 jobs per year. • A cost-benefit analysis suggests the benefits of the new beds outweigh the costs, even without considering improved health outcomes.

    the facts have not yet come to light and that will occur when an investigation takes place. but this does prove one thing and that is there is a shortage of staff, they are overworked and underpaid and as a result things will and sadly can go wrong. as a result govt needs to step in. funding increases and so on need to be addressed .

    Walk in there and don’t leave until they attend to your questions. I would be focused on this, and nothing else in my life. Please, be strong and march in there.
