Re "Pair Files Wrongful Death Suit in Alleged Neglect of Mother, 85," Jan. 11. I would like to add to the letters regarding the Shoreline Care Center in Oxnard. My father has Alzheimer's disease. He has lived at Shoreline Care Center for three years. Our family has become family to the many staff members who care for our Grampa Joe. The staff and administrators spend tedious hours caring for the most tragic illnesses of old age. They try hard, they lift, they bathe and they care for clients with whom they fall in love.

An Oxnard nursing home has again been sued for elder abuse and fraud after a 77-year-old resident allegedly lost 40 pounds and developed deep bedsores during a three-month stay. The lawsuit filed this week by Oxnard resident Archie Sandoval against Shoreline Care Center alleges that he suffered agonizing pain from sores on his feet and back that went untreated.

Re "Pair Files Wrongful Death Suit in Alleged Neglect of Mother, 85," Jan. 11. While we are sympathetic to the understandable distress of family members who have recently lost a loved one, this article requires a response. Comments of Pam Schuman, executive director of Ventura County's Long Term Care Ombudsman Program, indicating the superior quality of long-term health care in Ventura County--including that offered by our Shoreline facility--need to be emphasized. Our primary obligation and our primary concern are always residents' needs, and maintaining practices that ensure those needs will be met at the highest possible level.

Re "Pair Files Wrongful Death Suit in Alleged Neglect of Mother, 85," Jan. 11. My husband has been a resident at Shoreline Care Center since May 1998. I visit him almost daily, and in that time I have observed the employees being unfailingly kind and compassionate to the residents. My husband is always clean and neat. If a sore develops, salve is immediately applied. My husband has dementia and does not perceive reality. Once he complained of poor treatment. When I brought this to the staff's attention, it was quickly investigated and all channels and procedures were followed.

At first, it was the small things that troubled Barbara Aguilar about her mother's care at an Oxnard nursing home. A missing pair of eyeglasses, misplaced dentures. Then came problems with hygiene and concerns about whether her mother was getting enough to eat and drink. After eight months, Anna Mary Dumont, 85, was hospitalized with dehydration and bedsores. A week later, in late 1997, she died.
