Government invests additional $260 million in home and community care

May 2, 2013

The Ontario government has made an additional investment in the community care sector of $260 million in 2013/2014 to reduce wait times for patients needing home care services. This funding will also assist in reaching a target for patients who require nursing services and those with complex needs to receive home care within five days of their Community Care Access Centre assessment.

Helping seniors and others receive treatment and care at home and in their communities has benefits for the entire health care system by alleviating pressure on hospital beds, reducing ER visits and creating additional jobs in the community sector.

The Ontario government news release is available on the Ontario government website.
