Concrete steps are being taken by the province by dedicating money to keep long term care residents out of ERs and hospitals, and in those homes.
Golden Manor in Timmins is getting its share of $2-million spread over the Northeast.
Announcing the money, Timmins MPP George Pirie says it will provide the best quality of life supported by safe, first-class service.
“We’re doing this so long term care residents everywhere can connect to the care they need, when and where they need it.”
The Manor is getting $160,000 dollars, says Pirie, “to fund equipment, staff training and renovation costs for a new dialysis unit in the home, as well as training and equipment for advanced wound care and funding for staff who provide behavioural support and residents with complex care needs.”
Across the Northeast, the $2-million is spread over 14 projects.
