TerryLe Blanc had no idea what to expect from Ontario’s home-care system when he brought his elderly mother, Doris Galloway, home after she recovered from a badly broken shoulder.

Ms. Galloway, now 86, was living alone in Oshawa, just east of Toronto, when she fell in December, 2013. She lay on the floor for three days before police broke down her door at the urging of Mr. Le Blanc, who lived in Vancouver at the time.

The 55-year-old has since quit his hospital telecom job, given up his west coast apartment and moved in with his mother to care for her around the clock as she sinks deeper into the grip of dementia. 

The two are photographed in their Oshawa, Ont. home and at lunch at a local fish and chip restaurant , on July 1 2015. (Fred Lum/The Globe and Mail)
