The father of a Stephenville girl who requires home care around the clock says the costs related to home care may force the family out of the province.
Kallei Rogers, 2, was born with a rare muscle disorder. She is unable to move and needs 24-hour home care.
John Rogers, Kallei's father, brought his daughter to the Janeway in St. John's this November because the family was unable to afford home care costs.
However, donations started pouring in to the Rogers family from people across Newfoundland and Labrador.
They were able to spend Christmas at home thanks to these donations, but they will be unable to afford the costs of home care once that money runs out.
While the family is happy to be at home for the holiday season, they are not happy that government has yet to change their policy about who should cover home care costs.
"No change whatsoever at all from the government," Rogers said. "We have been in contact with members of the opposition, but from the government that is in power right now, no change at all."
The current policy has the government paying some, the family's insurance company paying another portion, and the family paying the remaining $2,100 a month.
Rogers said this isn't the way things are for families in the same situation in other parts of Canada and government policy may force the family to move to another province.
"Once I found out more about what goes on in the rest of Canada, or at least in most of the rest of Canada, and how they treat their people with this kind of need, I really felt bad for Newfoundland people," Rogers said.
"I feel disgusted to the point where eventually, if nothing changes, we may have to look at moving to another province."
