Living and Dying in Wait| 7mins
Director: Phil Carpenter | Producer: Phil Carpenter
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: Canada
In Quebec in 2008, the average wait time for the elderly infirm to get permanent placement in a public long-term care home is about a year. Temporary placements are sometimes available to patients coming from hospitals, but the families often have little or no say about where the patients get sent. Sometimes they die waiting.
