In March, Douglas Moody could brush his own teeth, feed himself, walk 30 metres, use the phone to call his family and use remotes to turn on his television, adjust the bed or call for help. He can no longer do any of those things. Janice Duffy says her 89-year-old father’s condition deteriorated drastically while she and her brothers were locked out of his long-term care home because of COVID-19 regulations. “With the isolation, the progression and decline in my dad was nothing short of remarkable,” she told HuffPost Canada in an interview. “It’s disturbing, to say the least.” Duffy believes her father’s condition got worse because staff at his nursing home, The Village of Glendale Crossing in London, Ont., didn’t have time to care for him properly.
