Lonely homes for the aged

Lonely homes for the agedBroadcast Date: May 8, 1966

At 84, Mr. Pimms still likes to pay his own way. Tragically, that put him at the mercy of an unscrupulous nursing home operator who rarely provided enough food or attendants to meet the needs of residents. This in-depth report talks to seniors like Mr. Pimms and takes a hard look at homes for the aged, where nearly 60,000 elderly Canadians reside. Some establishments offer impressive care. But in an unregulated industry, too many private facilities are fire traps, giving inadequate care with untrained personnel.

• When this episode of Seven Days aired, the Canadian Pension Plan had been in existence for just five months. Before its implementation, Canadians over the age of 70 received only the Old Age Pension of $75 per month.
• Today, nursing homes are regulated by provincial statute from coast to coast.
