The family of an 83-year-old B-C woman with late-stage Alzheimer's disease has lost its bid to have a care home stop feeding her to honour her last wishes. The B-C Court of Appeal says the care home is not feeding Margaret Bentley against her will because she is opening her mouth to accept food and water. The family's lawyer Kieran Bridge says he is disappointed with the judge's decision. (Bentley has been a resident at a care home in Abbotsford, B-C, since 2009.)
