firstly I live in nova scotia. my daughter age 38 is a resident at this nursing home for the past 10 years; as a result of a car accident. she has a brain injury. whenever I visit my daughter and ask her where she wants to sit today. she usualliy picks that she wants to sit in the chairs up by the front door . there is a lot of activitly here with people coming and going and my daughter does not get much stimulation besides this. yesterday when I visited my daughter and we went to the front where the chairs are; the chairs had been removed. I asked the secretary where the chairs went and she told me that they wanted to redecorate the area. also for the front offices to have more privacy. when I asked the supervisor she told me that the chairs were dirty and it was embarrassing when people came in to the building. wo she wants the entranceway to be bright and welcoming. I asked her about cleaning the chairs but she said 'no.i then suggested that I could take a small chair from my daughters room and use it and when I go home I could put the chair back. she said no.i honestly think based on the conversation and the answers I received that the reason is that the supervisor does not want people to be met with my brain injured decrepit face. this sounds sad and unbelieving but it makes sense to me. the supervisor here is not a woman to compromise. she is the boss and what she says goes. I have had a meeting with the patient advocate but this feel on deaf ears.
does anyone here in nova scotia have any idea who I can turn to next so my daughter can enjoy sitting in her favorite spot. thanks
