Building better long-term care

With more than 600 homes across the province, long-term care has been and will continue to be a safe and dependable support for seniors and their families. Today's seniors have complex medical needs that must be supported by the health system they have grown to depend on. Over the next decade it is expected that the number of seniors will grow by 50%, and by extension, so will the demands for long-term care services. The sector is doing its part, but cannot meet this challenge head on if we aren’t supported for it. We have solutions. Visit BetterSeniorsCare.ca and read our action plan to ensure better seniors' care.
