Thanks to Betty for leading the way!

Betty is a past caregiver whose husband lived in a long-term care home.  She decided to increase awareness for innovation in our long-term care home system by organizing a panel at her church through the JOY (just older youth) program.

When asked “Do you think transforming our long-term care home system should be a municipal election issue”, the overwhelming response was “yes” (75 people).

If you agree, here is a draft letter you can personalize and send to those running in your ward on October 22nd.   Names and emails of candidates in Ontario wards can be found by searching “certified candidates for 2018 municipal election in (insert city name)”. There are only a few weeks left to plant these seeds.

Please share this with your contacts and/or on your  Facebook or Twitter accounts.

  1. Hello Kathy:
    Thanks for doing this. I have shared to my Face Book page.
    I noticed in The Citizen that the president of CARP was published in Letters to the Editor with a fine commentary on transforming care.
    i am planning on sharing the letter as well.
