Everyone deserves to age with dignity
That includes high-quality, compassionate, public long-term care for all who need it.
In 2011, the Sask Party scrapped minimum care standards in long-term care, and staffing levels, care hours, and health care for seniors have been sliding ever since.
We’ve pushed back, but TWICE they’ve voted down our bill to re-establish long-term care standards.
Now, COVID-19 has laid bare Canada’s long-term care crisis, and Saskatchewan is not immune.
We need to act now.
We need legislated minimum care standards, more public options, and a long-term care system that puts our seniors first.
