It’s been four weeks since the province placed the Floralies long-term care residences under trusteeship, and the province’s investigation into mistreatment complaints is still ongoing.
Since then, Brigitte Lavoie hoped walking into Floralies LaSalle would be different, but after seeing that her sister’s living conditions are still deplorable, she is taking action on her own.
“I was so pissed off because I arrive at the room of my sister, she still has s–t in the bed. Her feet again were dirty,” said Lavoie.
On Thursday Lavoie filmed at least three spiders above her sister’s bed. She says they’ve been there for weeks.
Lavoie’s older sibling Sophie Lavoie is intellectually disabled and incontinent. She was told she would be at Floralies LaSalle temporarily, a year and a half ago.
