Panel Notes Long Term Care

Posted: November 20, 2011

(November 20, 2011)

Professor Hugh Armstrong, Carleton University, speech to OHC Assembly and Conference, November 2011.

My assignment is to discuss long-term residential care, and to suggest how it can be better integrated with other health care sectors.

Let me start with long-term residential care itself, and more specifically with what are usually called nursing homes.  These are facilities that in Ontario and elsewhere across the country are heavily regulated, receive most but not all their revenue from the provincial government, and have residents who are in need of considerable nursing and personal support care.  This means that I’m not focusing on retirement homes, although heaven knows they need our critical attention.
