OLTCA releases recommendations on long-term-care
The Ontario Long-Term Care Association (OLTCA) today released a paper that articulates several priorities they feel would enhance long-term care in Ontario. Click here to access the paper. These priorities include:
- Improving the government’s 2014 Enhanced Long-Term Care Renewal Strategy;
- Providing specialized in-home resources to meet the needs of residents, particularly those with dementia and other complex needs; and
- Ensuring funding for long-term care is, at a minimum, paced with inflation each and every year.
OLTCA is the largest association of long-term care providers in Ontario and the only association that represents the full mix of long-term care operators – private, not-for-profit, charitable, and municipal. Members provide care and accommodation services to over 70,000 residents annually in nearly 440 long-term care homes in communities throughout Ontario.
