New Brunswick seniors’ home limits toilet paper to two rolls per person a week
MONCTON, N.B. — A New Brunswick seniors’ home is advising residents they will each be limited to two rolls of toilet paper a week. The Manoir Notre-Dame in Moncton says the move is necessary because of an increase in overall costs. The Aug. 2 note adds that paper tissues will no longer be distributed.
But management says residents will be able to obtain additional toilet paper if it’s added to their prescription deliveries.
Anita LeBlanc, who went public with the notice, says it’s a humiliating situation. She says her mother-in-law called her, asking her to buy toilet paper after staff at the home refused to give her any.
Officials with the Manoir Notre-Dame did not want to be interviewed. LeBlanc maintains that close relatives of the seniors were not informed of the toilet paper ration.
