From Nine To Noon, 9:09 am on 11 April 2017

Capital and Coast District Health Board is being accused of pushing the boundaries of its ageing in place policy to the detriment of older people. Kathryn Ryan talks to Chris Sanders, the General Manager of Sprott House, a charitable Wellington residential care facility who says clients are increasingly coming to them - late, sometimes malnourished, and unable to care for themselves. She says in some cases people who can't go to the toilet themselves never mind leave the house, are being refused residential care.
