Retirement home on King is deplorable

The Star is running a front-page article on the deplorable conditions in the In Touch retirement home in Weston.

People left in urine and feces-filled diapers for hours. Washrooms with no toilet paper so residents, some suffering from dementia, wiped themselves with their hands or a flimsy communal towel. No stimulation. Bad food. Poorly trained and underpaid staff, with just one on duty overnight.

The In Touch retirement home is in the Tyrrell house at King and Rosemount.

The Star sent a reporter undercover to live at the house for one week. What he found is shocking.

  1. Many years ago I returned a lost and confused resident to this facility. Seconds after entering the foyer my eyes watered and my nostrils stung from the smell of ammonia……(urine, not a cleaning product). Perhaps he wasn’t lost or confused, but trying to escape?
