I am writing to you about our government's initiative to increase personal support in a major expansion of home care by creating 2.6 million more hours of home care and developing new patient and family friendly supports across the Province.
With this expansion, home care patients and those who care for them will benefit from approximately:
- 1.5 million additional hours of personal support services, which includes help with bathing, dressing and exercising.
- 390,000 additional hours of nursing care, which includes one-on-one care from a nurse for services such as palliative care, wound care and dressing changes.
- 110,000 additional hours of therapy, which includes speech and language therapy, occupational and physiotherapy services.
- 600,000 additional hours of respite services for caregivers, such as personal support or nursing, so they can schedule breaks for rest, family commitments or other priorities.
All of these measures will assist in improving the quality of life for seniors.
