Newcastle MP Tim Crakanthorp has taken the death of one Stockton Centre resident and the hospitalisation of another to parliament overnight.
He’s calling on Disability Services Minister Ray Williams to explain how the terrible incidences could have possibly occurred not long after the two women moved into the group home.
The former Stockton Centre resident died reportedly suffering dehydration and the other disabled woman suffered serious health complications after moving into the home.
“I’m calling for the investigation to occur and for the government to stick to their commitment to have the same quality of care in both places,” said Tim Crakanthorp.
“My greatest concern is that the same level of care that was occurring at the Stockton Centre isn’t occurring at group homes which is a commitment that the government gave, so I’m going to be meeting with the minister [Ray Williams] to take this up with him.”
