An AMO Paper on Long Term Care and Senior Services.
AMO’s report, Coming of Age: The Municipal Role in Long-Term Care demonstrates that increasing costs, an aging population and increased provincial regulations are making the costs of long-term care unsustainable for municipalities.

Long-term care homes are designed for people who require 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting.  Each municipality in Ontario is required to establish and maintain a long-term care facility, either directly or jointly with another municipality. The service is provided on a cost-shared basis with the province.

Required form 'CaucusSelection' does not exist.
