LETTER: Hallway health care?

Editor:

I write with great concern regarding the situation surrounding the Broadacres Care Facility.

It is a beautiful, bright and homey facility with 14 available beds. A facility which anyone needing senior health care would choose as their home.

I have been keeping in touch with Cindy Kozak-Campbell from Interior Health and I now quote from her letter to me, “We have space for 9 temporary beds in a hallway adjacent to the existing Hardy View Lodge at Boundary Hospital and will be preparing those over the next 6 to 8 weeks for use.”

I question if anyone would choose a bed in the HALLWAY over a bed at Broadacres.

Is this what our seniors get after contributing to our community? There is going to be a meeting for all concerned at the public library meeting room in Grand Forks at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 28.

Everyone is welcome.
