An Alzheimer’s care facility served a resident more than food and medicine. The 81-year-old Alzheimer’s patient received eviction papers.
The resident’s wife Nancy Shiu said, “They want to kick out an incapacitated person.” Edgewood Vista in west Omaha advertises the facility cares for Alzheimer’s patients. However in court papers the lawyer for the facility alleges Donald Shiu has shown uncontrolled aggressive behavior. Nancy Shiu said “Donald is guilty of yelling and raising his voice when the doesn’t think things are correct but he’s no danger.”
Nancy said her husband is reacting to other Alzheimer’s patients who wander into his room which can’t be locked for safety reasons.
Nancy said she can no longer afford private pay and
Her husband qualifies for Medicaid payment to the facility. Whether that plays apart in the eviction she can only speculate.
A court hearing on the eviction is scheduled for next week. Edgewood Vista management sent Channel Six Fact Finders a response. Due to privacy laws the statement doesn’t mention Donald Shiu by name.
An eviction hearing is scheduled for Douglas County Court next week.
