Ontario Home Care Workers Speak Out

I don't often broadcast other videos on this blog. This one, however, talks about the issues that affect those working in and receiving home care.

The issues are: salary, transportation, working hours, access to services, fair wages, continuity of care, access to equipment; assistive devices: mechanical lifts, equitable delivery of services across the province, quality control, accountability of individuals and agencies, client respect and dignity.

As they say, the funding just isn't there for adequate funding, equal pay for work of equal value and to fulfil the Ontario Government's policy of enabling seniors to live well at home.
