Homecare

NDP Health Critic Lorraine Michael

NDP Health Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says vulnerable people dependent on privately-delivered homecare are dealing with repeated breakdowns in the system. Michael is hearing from those people – and their families – on an alarmingly frequent basis.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) continued to look for answers from the premier on the health summit he will host in January to determine how to reduce health care costs.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) has serious concerns about the strategy for long-term care and community support services released today by government.

 

NDP Leader and Health Critic Lorraine Michael says a national study on seniors and home care released today should lend some urgency to the Dunderdale government’s long-promised strategy on long-term care and home care. Michael says the Health Council of Canada’s report on seniors, home care and family caregivers reflects the situation for many people in this province.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says she is hopeful today’s Throne Speech indicates the Dunderdale Conservatives finally plan to pay attention to some issues she has been highlighting for years. At the same time, however, she says there remain some gaping holes in government policy.

 

NDP Leader and Health Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) pointed to recent reports from the Burin Peninsula about facilities for patients with dementia as a sign that the government must act soon on the long-term care and homecare strategy it has been promising for years.
