CARP Sudbury Meets with Andrea Horwath

Andrea Horwath, Ontario provincial NDP leader met with a number of concerned Sudburians recently to hear their health care concerns. Patricia (Pat) A. Douglas, CARP Sudbury chair, was one of these people.  CARP Sudbury is advocating for a change in our present home care program for the fragile seniors who suffer from a number of health issues. CARP is recommending that a program similar to PACE (in USA) and CHOICE ( Edmonton, Alberta ) be established as a pilot project in Sudbury. These programs allow the seniors to remain longer in their homes and reduces or delays re-admissions to the hospital and to long term care facilities.
