CAN FEDERAL STANDARDS IMPROVE LONG TERM CARE?

 

In this research report SSAO examines the viability of Federal Standards for long-term care and its currently misguided approach to focusing on design standards and accreditation.  Are Federal standards that key stakeholders have been calling for likely to succeed?

Also discussed is the apparent inability of the provincial government to have held the long-term care industry to legislated care-related standards for decades.

In light of Ontario's refusal to accept millions in Federal funding for long term care that have added accountability standards, what incentive could the Federal government provide that would entice provinces to even accept Federal standards and funding?  And why have neither the provincial or federalgovernments listened to older adults' calls for the federal government to fund municipalities directly to provide in-home and neighborhood-based residential care similar to what Denmark has done?
