Changes to funding structures
My mother-in-law's access to care in her home was inadequate. She was approved for 30 minutes per week to have someone assist her with a bath and 15 additional minutes on alternating weeks to do her laundry.
I mentioned the barriers she was faced with only to be told there was no money for additional assistance for her. I went on the Ontario government’s website and was surprised to read about how they are investing money to care for seniors at home to give them integrity. I have come to the conclusion that either the government has not met their commitment or, what money was allocated to the program is being spent on the administrative level. Funding is not benefiting patients or front line staff.
