today, the Parliamentary members of the criticism of an 'invisible' and 'completely absent' ældreminister, while Magnus Heunicke will not even interrupt his vacation on the island of Bornholm to comment on the matter.
- Now pops-again, a case of optimisation, namely a gigantic failure of Else in Aarhus, and once again we must note that the minister is totally absent, says ældreordfører in the Left, Jane Heitmann, to Ekstra Bladet.
- It is beneath all criticism, that the minister should not put himself forward in front of the front line and take responsibility for the lack of priorities on ageing.
the Extra Leaf has, among other things, brought several articles about the major challenges in the optimisation and the impact that coronakrisen have been given to residents in nursing homes on the basis of the priorities of the tests and protective equipment, and the new stories of failure in nursing homes are still standing without comment from the minister.
Jane Heitmann believes that now may be the right time for Magnus Heunicke to break the silence.
- It is immensely sad that we are in a situation where we are discussing the supervision, guardianship, competence among the employees, relatives ' possibilities to complain and the other deep, essential areas for the elderly, and the only one not participating, is the minister, she says to Ekstra Bladet and adds:
It speak for itself.

- We were many who rejoiced that the optimisation could get a boost with a decidedly ældreminister. But I'm not the only one who has been disappointed with how invisible a ældreminister we have. And how few of those important debates, which have been lifted, says Astrid Krag.
This, on the basis of a legislative agenda, where the only item on the agenda was a presentation on the optimisation of Thyra Frank.
A statement as Magnus Heunicke together with proposals concerning the optimisation of udlod in lovprogrammet in the year.
Karina Adsbøll (DF) refers to the three questions posed to the older - and the minister of health in april, relating to the nursing home Kongsgården, where Magnus Heunicke please relate to whether there has been neglect, as well as describe the scope.
'the Question can not be answered within the deadline, as the ministry is awaiting the contributions from the Danish Agency for Patient safety. I will answer the question as soon as possible and expect to be able to do this in mid-august 2020' according to a written reply from the minister in June.
the Extra Leaf has turned to the Agency for Patient safety in order to inquire into the details of the preparation of the contribution.
They do not want to comment on and refer to ældreministeren.

rays of sunshine at Svaneke røgeri. We are here at the smokehouse with the family. The girls in frituren for ferrets and fillet of plaice. And it's always the gun delicious. But I take the paternal role on me and buys herring, rye bread, radisser and an egg yolk. Let me persuade all the time sweet lady behind the counter with the most wonderful laugh. Feel completely adult. And it's called “ray of sunshine” here in Svaneke, and it tastes the same. We ❤️ Island
In an interview with TV 2 says during the ældreordfører, Birgitte Vind, however:
- Now we have lifted the economy in the municipalities, and we are also working on whether there can be a retraining of the unemployed, so there will be more staff. And so we need to talk with them, performing the work, to find out where the shoe pinches.
