The awful In Touch ‘retirement’ ‘home’ has been told to close its doors, according to the Toronto Star. In Touch made news a few years ago for its deplorable conditions and its awful treatment of residents. The subsequent reverberations have changed the industry.
Now Elaine Lindo, the owner of the former Tyrell home located on the corner of Rosemount and King, has been told to close up shop. Lindo lost her licence to operate a retirement home. She also lost an appeal.
According to The Star, the owner
finds most of her clients on the streets and in hospital wards, then offers them care in exchange for their assignment of their pensions.
