A third party will decided who's in the right, a senior or the senior home.
81-year-old Eva Makowichuk currently resides at the Ukrainian Dnipro Seniors Home but management wants to evict her.
According to an eviction notice, handed out on March 15th, management alleges speaking numerous of times with Makowichuk of "bullying and interfering" with tenants. She appealed which resulted in the senior home staying the eviction temporarily.
Public Interest Alberta's Executive Director, Bill Moore-Kilgannon, speaking on behalf of Makowichuk, states the eviction was re-instated when she broke a new rule that was put in place in the commons.
"That she’s broken the rules by going to have a so called meeting with her friends in a public area. The care facility had banned all public meetings and wouldn't even allow any of the seniors living there to get together, even after church for coffee and tea."
Makowichuk has been living in the facility for 16 years and is recovering from cancer, raising concerns from her doctor about moving if evicted.
A mediation process will begin on Thursdays. No comment has been given by the care facility at this time. (dm)
