I fed my mother dinner every night until the COVID lockdown

Jun 15th, 2020

My 98 year old mother with severe dementia is living in a seniors lodge in northern Alberta. I always went to feed her dinner every night until this covid 19 lockdown.

I feel like she is one of the seniors that is falling through the cracks as she does not respond to electronic forms of contact. The only thing she still responds to is eye contact and physical touch. I think it’s time to allow families back in to these facilities because the residents are losing weight and are totally stressed.
