Dear Minister Elliott,
I’m counting on you to support Bill 13, the Time to Care Act.
Bill 13 would require all long-term care homes in Ontario to provide a minimum care standard of an average of 4 hours of hands-on care to their residents each day.
Even though all parties supported the same bill at second reading in the last session, it was allowed to die when Premier Wynne prorogued the legislature.
This is simply unacceptable. Our seniors are suffering and they need your help now.
On July 31st, the Time to Care Act was reintroduced as Bill 13 and I’m asking for your help to make sure it gets passed.
Every new day without a legislated, minimum daily care standard is another day of residents spending long hours alone and waiting for basic needs to be met, often sitting in their own unchanged clothing as workers are run off their feet trying to do their best to keep up.
That’s why I’m asking you to please make sure this legislation is passed into law.
Your support will help give nursing home residents the care and respect they deserve.
