Diana Pepin’s mother has a form of dementia caused by brain injury. She can’t walk, talk, feed or dress herself. In August, she was hospitalized for 10 days in critical care. Her family thought she was going to die. Her family thought that she’d be taken care of, in final days. They were wrong, big time.
Her family placed a video-recording device with her, and what they saw/heard blew them away, and destroyed their thoughts of the staff at Peter D. Clark long-term care home.
She watched in shock as a personal support worker getting her disabled mother ready for bed, leaned close and asked: “Why is it taking you so long to die? They keep feeding you too much food, or what?”
