Residents and Family to have stronger voices in Long-Term Care Homes

Posted in: , ,

People living in long-term care (LTC) homes will have more input into issues that affect their daily lives as the result of changes to resident and family councils.

The goal of improving the councils is to ensure a greater voice for residents and their families, and to strengthen the partnerships between the councils, the Ministry of Health, health authorities and operators by ensuring opportunities for increased communication and collaboration exist within all long-term care facilities.

The revised regulations will ensure members have more access to information and can have frank conversations about their experiences.
