Better long-term care

The sad truth is that seniors in too many long-term care homes haven’t been getting the care they need or the attention they deserve. Residents are being left in bed for 18 hours at a time, and they face lengthy waits for help to bathe and change clothes — even to get to the bathroom. Workers in those long-term care homes are doing the best they can, but they’re run off their feet.

Ontario’s seniors deserve care that treats them with respect and dignity. And they deserve a government that will ensure they get it.

“We are impressed with the tremendous leadership the NDP has shown in advocating for a minimum care standard in Ontario’s legislature.”

— Ontario Health Coalition

Long-Term Care Residents’ Bill of Rights
We'll update it to enshrine the right of spouses not to be separated against their will.
Minimum of four hours of hands-on care per day
We'll restore a legislated minimum standard of care for every long-term care resident in Ontario, and fund long-term care homes so they can meet it.
15,000 more long-term care beds over five years
Rising to 40,000 by 2028. Expanding the not-for-profit and municipal sector, where funding goes to patient care instead of profit.
