New Brunswick se­niors’ home lim­its toi­let pa­per to two rolls per per­son a week

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

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.
