The trusted voice for senior care.
AdvantAge Ontario welcomes the commitments put forward by the
government in Aging with Confidence: Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors. We
particularly applaud the focus on improving care and support at all stages and
levels of need so that every senior can live life to the fullest.
Together with our many sector partners, we have pressed long and hard for
many of the priorities set out in the plan. Action on these commitments will
move the bar in a very big way and bring care for Ontario’s seniors to where it
needs to be.
However, much depends on the details in terms of funding and
implementation. The recommendations put forward in our recent Budget Submission are
critical for ensuring that there is “action” on this plan in a way that adequately
and appropriately supports the sector in its efforts to provide the best possible
care for seniors. That action must begin now.
AdvantAge Ontario looks forward to working with the province and all other
stakeholders in making good on the Action Plan promises.
