MPP Ann Hoggarth Visits Roberta Place

As a part of the Better Seniors Care Advocacy Campaign, Staff at Roberta Place Long Term Care reached out to MPP Ann Hoggarth with an invitation to come and address residents, staff and family members on May 1st. 

The Better Seniors Care Campaign, in partnership with the Ontario Long Term Care Association, "highlights 4 priorities for delivering safe and supportive long term care in a comfortable home-like environment". With the success of shifting support to help seniors age at home with home care, seniors coming into long term care have increasingly complex needs and multiple conditions requiring additional supports. Funding hasn't kept pace with the increasing needs of our residents and this trend will continue over the coming years with the aging baby boomer population.

Roberta Place Administrator, Carmen Priester remarks how the resident population at the Essa Road long term care home has changed significantly since Roberta Place opened. Back then, residents had cars and designated parking near the front doors.

"Since 2010, only seniors with high -- or very high -- care needs are eligible for admission to long-term care. This is largely due to the province's aging-in-place strategy (meaning) there is more funding for care at home," she said, "Now, more than ever, residents need the government to act on our recommendations and support long-term care to ensure residents receive the safe, quality care they deserve, both now and into the future," Priester said. "Solutions are needed not only to sustain our exceptional current care but to enhance the services that are being provided."

MPP Ann Hoggarth will present the letters to Queen's Park on behalf of the residents and families at Roberta Place.
