The Wynne government says it doesn’t want to keep you waiting.

The province is spending $75-million to provide more timely home care visits.

It’ll mean more nursing visits and more hours of care for those who need personal support such as help bathing and dressing.

Currently, 93% of eligible patients received their first nursing visit within five days of being approved for home care.

84% get a visit from a personal support worker (PSW) within the five-day wait time target.

Health Minister Eric Hoskins says ”We know that patients want to receive the best quality care in the comfort of their homes for as long as possible.”

Ontario will also spend $9.7-million this year to train personal support workers to deal with specific conditions such as dementia.
