Medication too costly for seniors

Excerpts of a letter to Brian Kenny.

Re: All medication given to a resident in the nursing home must be prescribed by the doctor!

This is a notice to the Department of Social Development, that as of Oct. 1, we will no longer allow this government to take money out of my mother's Comfort and Clothing Allowance to pay for all of her prescribed over-the-counter medication. We will take her money out of the nursing home.
