Viet had the following statements:

“He was a loving great-grandfather, grandfather, father and husband.  We entrusted his care to the owners of Erin Mills Lodge and their actions caused us to lose him to soon.”

“He was the head of the family and he was always there for every member of the family.”

“He loved  to travel and had an interest in photography/videography in order to capture all life’s special moments.”

“I consider it my duty to my father to push for an investigation of this tragedy. Those that are responsible for this state of affairs must take responsibility and be held accountable.  That is the reason I decided to go forward with this action on behalf of all the residents of Erin Mills Lodge.”


There are many well run long term care facilities in the province of Ontario.  In fact over half of the long term care facilities in Ontario have no deaths, according to Gary Will.  We at Will Davidson LLP salute those dedicated individuals and companies who are working so hard to keep these vulnerable residents safe and healthy in these difficult times.  At the other end of the spectrum there are a small handful of homes which have accounted for the majority of deaths in long term care facilities in Ontario.  Unfortunately, Schlegel Villages Inc. did not properly care for its vulnerable residents and this has resulted in dozens of grieving families.

    Hello, My 93 year old Mother is in The Village of Glendale Crossing (a Schlegel LTC) in London On.
    Since almost the first day of Mom living there I have had serious issues. Countless Ministry of Health for LTC investigations, which in some cases Schlegal was found non-compliant. However on January 11, 2022 I was issued a No Trespass order prohibiting me from entering the building or being on the property. Another daughter was issued a No Trespass in December. The GM & the rest of the Leadership Team have stopped responding to emails or phone messages. I have a camera in Mom’s room & I have a lot of videos showing neglect & abuse. It’s because of my advocating for Mom that I now can not see her. She fell in December & no one called an ambulance. I saw it happen on the camera & rushed up to call 911. She had fractured her clavicle & had a huge bump on her forehead & a lot of bruising. They never call 911 & a resident who fell last year died 3 days later from internal bleeding. We need help. We need this Schlegel home reported & the public aware of what goes on. Please can you help me?
