Let’s take Action
Make a care standard for nursing home residents the law.
Since 1992, the complexity of care needs of Ontario’s long-term care residents – the majority of who are 85 years of age or older – has increased significantly.
73 per cent of residents have some form of Alzheimer’s or dementia and most need help with feeding, bathing, toileting and getting out of bed.
Yet Ontario funds long-term care at a lower level than just about any other Canadian province. The result of provincial underfunding is that there isn’t enough staff to provide residents with the care time residents need each day to live with dignity in Ontario nursing homes.
