This is the title of a very interesting article. Every senior and caregiver in Ontario should read this article and get up to speed on its topic. New laws from the Ontario government will force people who are waiting for a LTC bed to be discharged from the hospital that they are currently in and move them to any LTC bed in the province. Yes, people could very well be re-located far away from their loved ones. Also, if they actually remain in the hospital, waiting for a LTC bed in their area, they could be charged $1,500.00 per day to stay in the hospital. This is a very scary time for old, vulnerable seniors in Ontario.
Please read this article. You need to know what is being proposed and imagine how this may affect your loved one.
