Letter: Sweet Brook article should prompt change


To the editor:

Because I have a relative who has been a resident at Sweet Brook for several years, I am familiar with the content of Sunday's Berkshire Eagle storyI have been a visitor there many times, and nothing in your article was a surprise to me. Attempts by other relatives to rectify the abuses we observed were mostly futile.

In your article for the first time I read the names of the owners of Sweet Brook. Actual people who are responsible for the operation of that facility. Taking advantage of a vulnerable population for financial gain is both immoral and criminal. Would they themselves elect to be residents there? Would they be comfortable knowing their vulnerable family members were living there?

I am grateful to your reporter for illuminating this troublesome and dangerous situation. I hope the owners are provoked into meaningful response.

Susan C. Keefe,

South Burlington, Vt.
