Wildrose Seniors Critic Visits Lethbridge To Hear Local Concerns

 
 
LETHBRIDGE - The Official Opposition Seniors tour rolled into Lethbridge on Friday.


Wildrose Seniors Critic Kerry Towle is traveling the province to hear about issues facing seniors as they age. She's been hearing concerns about access to home cooked meals, having to leave communities while waiting for continuing care placement and the ability to age in the home with support.


Towle is also worried seniors services could see cuts when the provincial budget comes out next week. She says "cuts to front line workers and cuts to health care services usually directly impact our seniors, it really is an area that is low hanging fruit to the government and the impacts of it aren't seen immediately, but the impacts, when they are seen are devastating."


She says the front line staff can't handle anymore cuts, but the Alberta Health super board can, since they're responsible for a huge amount of wasteful spending.
