by Home Care Ontario | Dec 12, 2017

December 12, 2017:  The Board of Directors of Home Care Ontario welcomes the Ontario PC party promise to work directly with the home care sector to ensure high-quality patient care for Ontarians.

Home Care Ontario also supports the promise of doubling the Caregiver Tax Credit and increasing funding to support more frontline care (e.g. nursing, personal support workers, therapists, physicians). 

These measures will support Ontarians of all ages who depend on the creation of a robust home care system now, and into the future.
