Fraudulent, abusive and unethical....
From utilizing nurses only licensed in Alberta to work in BC, to firing a staff member due to taking personal time off due to visit a palliative parent, the top senior leadership at Retirement Concepts and West Coast Seniors Housing is as unethical as it comes. Top leaders continue to lie to residents, family, staff, media and even various health authorities. They claim that they are understaffed due to lack of talent in various markets...the fact is, they are understaffed due to paying less than a third of the industry average in so many positions.
It is unfortunate that organizations such as Retirement Concepts/West Coast Seniors Housing operate in such an unethical way, in an industry dealing with some of our most vulnerable citizens. These business practices are, without a doubt, impacting the quality of life of those living in the communities run by Retirement Concepts/West Coast Seniors Housing.
As the saying goes, “Integrity is about doing the right thing even when no one is looking”. The fact is, everyone is looking - from residents of these retirement homes, their families and friends, staff and many other community members. The arrogance displayed by this organization sickening and non-response to so many media inquiries is criminal. The leaders at Retirement Concepts/West Coast Seniors Housing need to be held accountable and shut down.
Kudos to the health authorities that have taken control of some of these private retirement homes.
