The Toronto Star reports that the Ontario coroners’ office will be investigating the In Touch retirement home in Weston.
In Touch was the subject of an undercover investigation by the Star that revealed terrible maltreatment of residents. Three residents may have died from starvation, today’s report says. Residents’ money also may have been stolen.
The Ontario coroner’s office is investigating the suspicious deaths of three elderly residents of a controversial west Toronto retirement home.
The coroner’s probe comes after a Star investigation detailed allegations that residents Edith Farrell, 80, and Danny Henderson, 74, died in hospital earlier this year after suffering severe malnutrition at In Touch Retirement Living.
After the story ran, family and friends of a third resident, Nellie Dineno, 83, came forward with allegations that she too had serious health problems that went untreated before her death in late July.
