Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September 16, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Health board opposes home for retarded CRANBROOK (Special) The East Kootenay Union Board ot Health is opposing the use of the St Eugene Mis- sion residence as a home for the mentally retarded Health officials say they will continue to voice strong objections to the project Board chairman Reg Taylor of Sparwood says, "Now is the time to take action The government funded conversion of the school into an institute for 60 mentally handicapped adults, described as capable of self care but re- quiring supervision, met the sustained disapproval of health board members meeting here 'We are failing in our duty if we do not raise strong ob- jections, says Dorothy Larsen Her motion, pledging to con- tinue expressing strong objec- tions to the mission's use as a home for those in our society least able to help was passed by board members The continued opposition follows hard on the heels of a submission to the minister of health by the board which condemned the building for poor ventilation, lack of soundproofing, lack of patients privacy, inadequate supervision and poor sleeping facilities Says board secretary Margaret Vogan "although the health minister said the mission would be upgraded to meet the board's recommen- dations very little work has been done The rooms, small, brightly colored cubicles, are supposed to be permanent homes for the approximately 60 adults who will live in the institute Each resident will have only four or five narrow drawers and a small open closet for clothes and personal belongings The six foot partitions between the rooms do not reach the ceiling, causing niose to travel easily among the rooms Electrical cords and plugs often hang from outlets in the ceiling The lack of any form of doors on the rooms adds to the noise and makes privacy vir- tually impossible The physical facilities would not contribute to the well being of the residents, the health board believes 'These facilities could only drag them says Jack Hall of Creston The board will urge the government to consider some alternate use for the building The board is in favor of bringing the building to stan- dards but not for its proposed use Correspondence with East Kootenay city councils shows the board has complete back- ing of city officials in this regard The board secretary, in cor- respondence with East Kootenay municipal ad- ministrators, said "in this day and age when the sole aim of the government is to remove the use of institutions and get people back to com- munities in small, home like conditions, it seems paradox- ical that an institution such as this is being planned for the East Kootenays At a recent council meeting, Aid Alex Demchuk of Cranbrook said the rooms resemble "cages and "the whole thing is disagreeable we do not want to see our peo- ple in there The provincial government rents the school from the five band Kootenay District Indian Council TOTAL IT'S THE BIGGEST DRAW IN THE WEST!
