Glenda glad to hear you and your mentally fit loved one have had such a great experience but do not discredit the concerns and experience of others. I do find your last few comments offensive and condescending... The concerns are not coming from one unhappy resident and even if it was how dare you discount concerns raised by residents and/or their families because you have none.

Ms Bartlett, your story was a very touching one and I commend those admin staff and other workers who are doing a fine job in caring for your father. Obviously your father is very mobile and able to articulate what his needs are and make his own food choices and how wonderful he was able to choose his own physician and more so it was someone who knew a lot about his medical past, which is not afforded to all residents in this Facility or anywhere else in Eastern Health. I will have to call you and your father the chosen ones, for all the special treatment you both received and wish every single old soul there was given the same attention. Your ending remark and I quote One unhappy resident or family member should not be the measuring stick for what is certainly one of the best retirement care facilities in this province, was not an accurate one, this is not about a resident or family being unhappy, it is about being treated with dignity, compassion, understanding and fairness. I could also say your one happy story should not be the measuring stick for this retirement care facility. If we, family, do not speak up for our loved ones, who are unable to fend for themselves, they will be forgotten and wither away until their last breath. Remember not all orphans at Mt. Cashel were sexually abused, just the weak and frail were taken advantage of…. it was a little too late when decades later someone finally believed one, two and several more of these young souls.
