Seniors coalition wants home care moved to health care
The Coalition for Seniors and Nursing Home Residents' Rights says home care for seniors should fall under the jurisdiction.
"The initiative is very clear that we need to make sure that seniors can live at home as long as they're able."
Cassista told Information Morning Moncton that many seniors are reluctant to go to a doctor or a hospital when they should because they are afraid of being admitted and then not permitted to go home. Cassista said the coalition wants to see a program that would allow seniors who want to, and are able, to stay at home around the clock.
