The Fix

Moira Welsh has investigated long-term care and retirement homes for more than 15 years, her work leading to legislative reform. She's been part of journalism teams that have won a Michener Award for Public Service Journalism and three National Newspaper Awards. "I'm in a cage … In a cage," says Inga Cherry about the many hours she spent in a locked dementia unit at a long-term care home. Her plight and those of others, including staff at LTC facilities, are the dark canvas upon which Welsh paints a picture of pilot efforts to bring joy and hope to a system in desperate need of reform.
