Petition to Save Local Long-Term Care Beds

Whereas: Seniors and their families need long-term care beds and high-quality care in their community; and

Whereas: Across Ontario, the number of people waiting for long-term care is expected to spike to nearly 48,000 in the next six years; and

Whereas: Hillside Manor, a local long-term care home, is set to close, resulting in a devastating loss of 90 beds; and

Whereas: The government is using the upcoming closure as reason to consider moving at least 38 of Hillside Manor’s 90 beds out of our area;

Whereas: Perth-Wellington has already lost long-term local care beds with no commitment from the government to replace them; and

Whereas: Many more long-term care bed licenses are set to expire in the coming years, and will require significant investment to be allowed to stay open;

Therefore: We the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly as follows: That the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care be asked to reject any proposal to reduce the number of long-term care beds in Perth-Wellington, and to increase investment in local long-term care facilities to accommodate our growing number of seniors and their needs.
