People having concerns about long-term care in Ontario will have the opportunity to learn more Tuesday, July 28.
Sudbury MPP Jamie West (New Democrat) will be hosting a virtual town hall meeting on his official Facebook page.
Terry Martyn, Family Council Co-Chair for Pioneer Manor;
Maria Casas, RNAO local member and,
NDP MPP Teresa Armstrong, critic for Home Care and Long-Term Care.
One of the issues likely to arise during the event is the call to action that came out this week from the Ontario Health Coalition, which says despite all the promises for improvements at long-term care homes, there is still “an emergency shortage” of staff to work in those homes. The issue was outlined in a posting on West’s Facebook page.
Tuesday’s event is live and open to the public.
