Stephen King Centre (a.k.a. George Pearson Centre)

I asked Tanu weeks ago if she could provide a trolley with wheels so that I could place the flowers I bring for Randy on it and wheel it in front of his feet or at the side of his bed. I am quite willing to pay for the cart. Placing flowers on his sidetab.le is stupid as he he edge of his bed he can view them all the time AND the flowers would also be visible to all the other residents, visitors and staff, so that the flowers can uplift their spirits. In January I took an empty trolley and the flowers looked nice except the next shift moved the flowers on the cupboards behind Randy's head and an incident report was written. This should not be difficult to implement as other residents have hugh older model televisons on stationary tables at their bedsides restricting free flow of staff.

GPC - March 2 2011

email sent to Paul, the author of

Paul you were right as per your blog. Do not trust anyone at VCH. I had a meeting with Bob who is risk management manager last Wednesday and I felt from that meeting that I could be friendly to the residents at GPC. On Monday evening I made a brief comment to a resident at his doorway and I was accused of going into his room which I did not do and I was banned. I was not even given the opportunity of responding to any of the other allegations most of which could have been easily explained. VCH has put Randy's life as well as my own at risk. If Randy does not have daily contact with me he will lose his will to live and he will die. I assure you that VCH has more power than any police force in the Province. Abuse of power is a mild term: what they are are bullies.

What I do not understand is that I was told that the resident's room is his home but yet I was removed yesterday from Randy's room by the police who said that GPC is a hospital and GPC can determine who can visit and who cannot.

These four months have been hard on me physically and emotionally. I can't even eat. What food I force myself to eat I vomit. I may die before Randy. It is well known that a caring caregiver lessens her life by ten years by doing what I am doing.
