TORONTO, March 29, 2012 /CNW/ - In an all-new investigation, W5 explores the shocking number of assaults in Ontario seniors' homes. On Saturday, March 31 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and CTV Mobile TV, "Senior's Moments" reveals that in just one year, there have been a staggering 1,788 resident-to-resident attacks in extended care facilities in Ontario. W5 further uncovers the changing face of nursing home patients: elderly and frail, near end-of-life patients are now living in mixed populations with patients aged 18 years and older. With the systemic closure of psychiatric hospitals in Ontario, long-term care facilities have become a dumping ground for violent patients in need of psychiatric care.
In the second story of the evening, W5 takes an in-depth look at the life and times of William Shatner. The iconic Canadian actor has a career on stage, screen, as a writer and director that spans seven decades and is still going strong. "Star's Trek" features an insightful and candid interview and key moments from Shatner's career. The W5 profile airs on the eve of Shatner's role as host THE 2012 JUNO AWARDS the next night, Sunday, April 1 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV.
