Vaccination Required to Visit Seniors in Nursing Homes
Home Care Vs Nursing Home During Covid
It has been many months since I have been able to hold my grandmother’s hand or give her a hug. I miss singing to her and rubbing her back. Is she feeling lonely or scared?
Covid has brought tremendous challenges to families who have loved ones in nursing homes. The nursing homes must enforce strict rules for visitation in order to keep their patients safe. I fully respect and understand that. At the same time, I wonder if her quality of life would be better at home with a live-in caregiver. Her children and grandchildren would be able to come and visit her with masks and social distance. She would get to hear the kids singing. I wonder if the programs that she used to have in the nursing home are running in the same way that they used to. Is the nursing home bringing her enough value?
I am starting to wonder if seniors are better off at home these days.
Seniors At Risk!
DID YOU KNOW THAT THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT IS CUTTING ALMOST 50% OF THE FUNDING THAT CURRENTLY ENSURES OUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS IN LONG TERM CARE HOMES RECEIVE THEIR MEDICATIONS CORRECTLY?
The Ontario government is cutting funding for pharmacy care in Ontario’s long-term care homes by almost half. They are putting our most vulnerable seniors at risk.
Seniors take many different drugs, at different times every day. Many rely on pharmacists and nurses to help them take and manage their medications.
The Ontario government currently funds programs to help seniors correctly administer and manage their medication. With the government’s cuts, this essential service would put vulnerable seniors at risk.
