Cuts by Doug Ford Conservatives leave city's long-term care homes short $550,000 - 2019-08-15
Upcoming provincial cuts to long-term care funding will leave the city's two homes short more than $550,000 a year.
"We just don't have any other places to find it," Paul Johnson, general manager of healthy and safe communities, said at the city's Emergency and Community Services Committee meeting Thursday. "Quite frankly, I would prefer to have increases to bring more staff on."
All long-term care homes in the province will be affected, but municipally-run homes like Hamilton's Macassa Lodge and Wentworth Lodge are anticipated to be hit hardest.
