The Advocacy Committee provides information to families of residents in long-term care facilities concerning residents’ rights and responsibilities under government legislation. In 2017, we received 126 requests for assistance or information from the public. The most prevalent themes have been:
1. Unfair and intense pressure to vacate hospital beds while waiting for a LTC bed
2. Inadequate care of a loved one in LTC
3. Inability to get prompt and reasonable access to a LTC home of choice.
If you have a question or concern about LTC, you can contact an advocate at
416-489-0146, or 1-855-489-0146 or email email@example.com.
