To the Editor,
My mother was a resident at the DP Jones Nursing home for the last 4 years of her life. We chose this facility because it was run by a community organisation, and because of the quality care it provided.
I wasn’t successful because the volunteer Board refused to say no to the poor and the vulnerable members of our community who could not afford to pay a bond.
Shame on all of us for allowing the Government to fund the care of our elderly so poorly. Kind regards
