An interview with Betty Hatt, founder of Concerned Friends

Betty Hatt

Betty Hatt passed away on March 20, 2014 at the age of 97.

Betty knew what caregiving is all about. In the late 1970s, she took an apartment across the street from the nursing home where her mother lived, and she visited every day.

It wasn’t a chore.

Mission

Concerned Friends of Ontario Citizens in Care Facilities, founded more than 30 years ago, is a non-profit registered charity dedicated to reform of the long-term care system and improvement of quality of life for residents.

We are a volunteer organization funded exclusively by donations and memberships. We receive no ongoing support from any government body.

History

Concerned Friends was born on September 7, 1980 when Betty Hatt and 15 concerned people met in response to a notice Ms. Hatt placed in the Globe and Mail. Her ad asked, simply, if others were appalled by the lack of care their loved ones were receiving in nursing homes.
