COVID-19 outbreaks, deaths continue to plague Alberta’s care homes – CBC

More than 200 long-term care and supportive living homes in Alberta currently have COVID-19 outbreaks

May 12, 2022

Mary Harris is spending the days leading up to her 100th birthday confined to one wing of her long-term care home as a COVID-19 outbreak sweeps through the facility, once again.

“I’m sure It’s depressing. My mother gets agitated by it and tries to escape,” said her daughter, Joyce Harris.

Through Alberta’s six pandemic waves, Mary — who has dementia and is no longer able to communicate after having a stroke — has struggled with being periodically confined as the facility tries to contain the spread of the virus.

She contracted COVID-19 in January during another outbreak and while her symptoms were mild, she had to be isolated in her room for two weeks.

According to her daughter, the mental health impacts are dramatic and ongoing.

“With restrictions being relaxed in the general public its once again its the residents of long-term care that are bearing the brunt of these new waves that come along,” said Joyce.
