‘It’s almost a few hundred beds that are now going to be gone in Manitoba,’ NDP health critic says

Concerns are being raised about space across Winnipeg personal care homes as Parkview Place, a 261-bed facility, prepares to shut its doors permanently.

The closure, announced Tuesday and planned to take place within the next year, follows a deadly COVID-19 outbreak, an ongoing cockroach problem and a provincial licence review of the downtown Winnipeg care home.

“Every time we lose capacity in our seniors-care system, it’s a loss,” said Laura Tamblyn Watts, the CEO of CanAge, a national organization that advocates for seniors.

“It’s really a double-edged sword. You don’t want people to lose spaces and lose their homes, but we want to make sure that those homes are good and safe. And right now, Parkview is pretty clearly not that.”
