Health Minister Theresa Oswald wants to assure Manitobans that the provincial government reviews all allegations of abuse in personal-care homes.

She was responding to accusations by Liberal Leader Jon Gerrard that the government was indifferent to elder abuse. He cited a report showing the government completed fewer investigations of abuse in personal-care homes during the past few years, while the number of allegations soared.


Oswald said Thursday that all reports brought before the provincial Protection for Persons in Care Office are reviewed. If a more detailed investigation is warranted, it is launched and remedies, if necessary, are carried out.

"The ... suggestion that things are being reported and not being reviewed, it's simply untrue. And Manitobans need to know that," she said Thursday.
