New Program Aims To Keep Seniors Home Longer
No one wants to see mom or dad go into a nursing home or hospital and a new program called Home First is designed to keep seniors at home longer.
The idea behind the program is to make hospital admissions, lengthy stays and transfers from hospitals to residential facilities more last resorts rather than common practice as they are now.
The plan is based on feedback from seniors and health care professionals.
The province is investing 7.2 million in the first year of the program.
