Family wasn’t told of long-term care resident’s death for almost a month – CBC

Daughter wasn’t notified when mother was dying in Ontario care home

Jun 12, 2022

After Melanie Barker died alone in a long-term care home in London, Ont., earlier this year, it took nearly a month for her family to be notified of her death. Her family members want to know why.

Barker, 66, died on Feb. 12 at Mount Hope Centre for Long-Term Care, where she had been living for nearly a decade. According to family members, London police showed up at a former residence of one of Barker’s children about 3½ weeks later to inform them of her death.

“This shouldn’t have happened. It makes me so angry that she died alone and the body sat in the morgue for a month. There’s no justification for that,” her sister, Donna Barker, said from her home in Havelock, Ont.

According to Barker’s long-term care records, provided to CBC News by the family, Barker’s condition sharply worsened on Feb. 9 after choking during lunch. She died on Feb. 12, but the family says it wasn’t notified until March 8.
