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
