Video (11-minutes): The Grief You May Experience When Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

  1. What I really admire about some non-Western cultures is their general belief in and practice of not placing their aged family members in seniors care homes.

    As a result, family caregivers don’t have to worry over those loved-ones being left vulnerable by cost-cutting measures taken by some care-home business owners to maximise profits.

    Care home neglect was present in Canada before Covid-19; however, we didn’t fully comprehend the degree until the pandemic really hit, as we horrifically discovered with the CHSLD Résidence Herron in Dorval, Quebec, 10 months ago.

    Western business mentality and, by extension, collective society, allowed the well-being of our oldest family members to be decided by corporate profit-margin measures. And our governments mostly dared not intervene, perhaps because they feared being labelled as anti-business in our avidly capitalist culture.

    But, as clearly evidenced, big business does not always know what’s best.

    Morally and ethically, the profit buck has to stop with the health and lives of human beings, especially those who have little or no voice.
