Elder Care Needs More Supervision

From the paper the Calgary Sun comes this story about Elder Abuse. The story says the lack of regulation of senior care staff is a drawback in facilities like the one where a Calgary senior was assaulted by three of his attendants, a city police officer said Friday.

Such workers aren’t bound to standards hospital workers are subject to, said Smiley of the force’s Elder Abuse Response Team (EART).

“At care facilities, it’s up to each organization to set the standard and there can be a high turnover.”

EART, formed in 2011, doubled its staff to four last January after handling 150 investigations last year, said Smiley.

But he said 80%-90% of complaints they receive involve abuse committed by family members, with the majority of it occurring in private homes.
