Some residents at a seniors home in Saskatchewan say there is bedlam at the facility because people with dementia are wandering around unsupervised. Jim Lawrence, who lives in the Ross Payant care home in Assiniboia, says the problem is there isn't enough staff to keep the doors closed to a special dementia unit at the facility. Health Minister Dustin Duncan says people with aggressive forms of dementia have been moved out of the facility. (Duncan also says staff levels at the care home have been almost the same since 2006.)
