When it comes to the care of our Seniors, OUR PARENTS, the Government Outsourcing to private enterprises simply does not work. Course, if GOVERNMENT LEADERS, like Stephen Harper or Gordon Campbell cared about people, then perhaps outsourcing could work, but as THEY DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT PEOPLE, IT SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK.
Unless you are rich, have a big pension or are independently wealthy, you are going to need assistance when you get old. That is a fact of life, but if we allow the Harper’s & Campbell’s to continue in power, then we might as well go off and kill ourselves.
Vancouver Island Health Authority ] along with Beacon Community Services should be ashamed of themselves. Worse, they should all be sent packing, for the way they treat elderly people.[
To send incompetent, uncaring people in their homes, to make them do their jobs, while collecting over $20 an hour, is simply TAKING MONEY UNDER FALSE PRETENCES.
There is little, if any training, given to these workers, who come into our home, to attend to our Seniors. Some can barely speak English, certainly not understand it very well. They have no idea what it means to have a light touch, or to even know how to properly lift a person up. Yet they are here, caring for our elderly Parents.
Add to that the locals who are too arrogant to read a care plan, or to stuck up to realize they are here TO WORK, NOT SUPERVISE, and you have a recipe for ABUSE. It is common sense, but the people showing up, are devoid of any sense, let alone Common Sense. Instead we, the sons & daughters, have to step in and do THEIR JOB, all because OUR GOVERNMENT IS FAILING US, REPLACING OUR NEEDS WITH THE NEED FOR CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS.
The issue isn’t that we aren’t willing to do the job, but that we need help in doing it. I am the son of a 93 year old, it isn’t right that I should be washing her private area, but now I have to. All because our Government has outsourced the home support to a company that hires incompetent, untrained workers.
I look after Mom 23 out of the 24 hours. The ONE HOUR A DAY that Beacon Community Services are here, is not a respite for me, as I have to stand guard, to protect Mom from their Workers.
THANK YOU STEPHEN HARPER, GORDON CAMPBELL, FOR RUINING OUR LIVES & ABUSING OUR PARENTS. I HOPE YOU UNCARING BASTARDS CAN SLEEP AT NIGHT.
