The article focuses on the deterioration of long term care for the elderly in Alberta. It says that almost every long-term care facility in Alberta is understaffed, with a 17 % decrease in registered nurses (RN) from 2007-2009, that limits their service and amount of personal attention to any resident. Furthermore, the Alberta government proposes the transfer of many senior citizens in public nursing homes to private assisted living facilities where health services will be provided by home care.
