VOICE OF THE PEOPLE — Let’s muster collective will to transform long-term care (Oct. 16, 2020)

Long-term care is under the microscope and in the spotlight — exactly where those of us in the sector want it and need it to be. For many years, nursing homes, unions and our provincial association have been speaking with one voice, pleading for more investment and changes. Yet we were unheard.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a “great reveal” for Canada — indeed, for many countries — and there is agreement among all stakeholders that we must do and invest more. Yet report after report has yielded the same information. We must move forward from recommendations to immediate action.

At Glen Haven Manor, we consistently make the point to all who will listen that our residents — and all those in long-term care across this great country — deserve solutions right now. Not next week or next year — but today.  continued
