Ivy Meadows home in Nova Scotia is the scene of what appears to be the eighth agression-related death in just the last eight years in Nova Scotia nursing homes.

Police have opened a suspicious death investigation, but are sharing little other information with the public.

Nurses and personal support workers have long been aware of agression and behavioural-telated problems linked to dementia.  And yet provinces continue to lack both strategy and funding to adequately deal with the problem.

Members of the public can always contact their local Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) and ask that more focused and adequately-funded actions be implemented.
