After more than a year, Fort Resolution elder still waiting for wheelchair ramp – CBC

Terri Beaulieu only leaves house 3 times a week for dialysis appointments

Feb 13, 2020

Dawna Beaulieu carries her mother Terri Beaulieu, 72, down the steep front staircase of their Fort Resolution home three times a week — so her mom can get dialysis treatments in Hay River, N.W.T.

These are the only times Terri leaves the house. The elder, who has diabetes and is bound to a wheelchair, has been waiting for a ramp for her home for at least a year and a half.

“She can’t even go into the local stores here or anywhere,” Dawna told the CBC. “She can’t even visit her own children or grandchildren.”

Terri is also getting one of her feet amputated, Dawna said, a major complication from her diabetes. CBC tried to call Terri for an interview, but she was in hospital awaiting a procedure.
