When seniors care is delivered effectively, our health resources are used more efficiently, providing care to Canadians of all ages when and where it is needed most. Our call for a national seniors strategy includes:
- Developing a coordinated home care plan so seniors can get the support they need to stay in their homes longer;
- Creating a national strategy for palliative and end-of-life care;
- Boosting key infrastructure investments to improve and provide more residential care options for seniors;
- Enhancing financial support for family caregivers by making tax credits refundable.
