What is the standard of care required for Brent O’Connor to live in a group home?

Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from O’Connor v. Mahabir, 1999 ABQB 326 (CanLII):

Ideally Brent O’Connor should be able to live in quarters of his own specially designed for handicapped use with an appropriate level of ongoing care to take care of his day to day living requirements. This would likely be the third level of care mentioned in Dube v. Penlon supra. Such quarters would likely be found in a group home setting which would afford a measure of freedom which is very important to Mr. O’Connor, but at the same time would permit the sharing of facilities designed for wheelchairs and incapacitated individuals. The cost of day to day care could also be shared.
