It has been some time that I have been watching an old couple in the neighbourhood, both over 80.
He has very advanced dementia, or even Alzheimer’s. She is the only caregiver 24-7 and has ailments of her own, which are put on the backburner. The home is far too small for helping hands, so these two have to struggle on their own. Interior Health does not provide a carehome for him, because he is not a danger to himself or others. In my opinion he is a big danger to the health of his wife, his caregiver.
Interior Health is telling her he is on the list. Is he on the list? If yes, lists can be manipulated. Do we have to be born in this town, or know the right people in order to get all the help we need?
