Seniors entering long-term care today are older and have more complex medical needs than they did just a decade ago and the level of care residents need has increased dramatically.

“This funding will allow homes in our community to hire and retain more staff so they can provide more care to residents, every day,” said MPP Bill Walker. “This is part of our government’s plan to hire thousands of new staff over the next four years to ensure those living in long-term care get the high-quality care they need and deserve.”
