  1. It’s generous of the Conservative government of Ontario to offer public money to fix the problems of private long term care homes, I hope that Ontarians are OK with private share holders raking in dividends while this is going on.

    • Exactly! I used to work at Starwood Extendicare, the hardest hit long term care home in Ontario. Management received bonuses to keep it short staffed.

  2. This is a step in the right direction of course….BUT… in the grand scheme of it all, it’s just slapping on a bandaid.

  3. Will they be working part time at 2 different homes so they can spread viruses from one place to another? It didn’t just happen in 2020. Aides have to work 2 part time jobs to make a living wage because full time is only available to the few.

  4. Too little to late

    • Out ‘West’ we are building new facilities that are just for seniors. The biggest hurdle is how to get the ones that don’t want to give up drinking to ‘join the program’ and leave the basement apartments for the low income as intended.

  5. More staff….how bout their families …bullsheet …your something else lady

  6. Air conditioning!

  7. When I’m 60 just drop me off In the woods and forget about me bruh

  8. Every PC news session just seems like a politically motivated bid for popularity. A little late reacting and no mention of how Provincial government(s) dropped this ball decade after decade.

  9. Decrease management Increase Nurses/Psw

    • Exactly! but no….they wont do it and still blame it on healthcare workers while CEOs keep tucking all the money for themselves.

    Your government is committed? You mean, they ought to be….into a penal institution. It’s WWIII and ‘they’ are on the wrong side of it.

    • Nobody has fought more for seniors then Doug Ford. What did Catheline do???? Obsolutly nothing all those years prior to Doug Ford getting in.

  11. about time but let’s see how and if this will actually be implemented

  12. I am an RN who has worked LTC. This is how the first meeting to teach staff how to implement these changes will start- ” You all are already doing this you just need to start documenting it.”

    When the staff/client ratio changes I will clap my hands. What they say and what they do have to match.

    Comments being deleted? The truth is too real?


  16. My grandma’s a centenarian. She desperately wants all the viruses.

    Barely get 30 mins a day we have been short staffed since before COVID still haven’t received $3 an hour increase

    Where’s the pay raise you promised mo the back all talk no results.

  19. They are literally bringing in thousands of refugees daily and let me guess who they are told to vote for???? Liberals that’s how they get power. Covid is about power money and control nothing else.

  20. I’ll believe it when I see it. That administration has way too many ties to private long term care
