Community First - Seniors Aim

Seniors - png

Improving health care for seniors is a top priority of the Central East LHIN.

The population of seniors is growing, and this group often has complex health care needs. As a result, there will be increased pressure on caregivers, communities and our health care system.

A focus on seniors will foster improvements in the health care experience of patients and their caregivers, as well as in the overall quality and sustainability of the health care system in the Central East LHIN. 

Achieving the Seniors strategic aim requires providing alternatives for home and specialized care that helps seniors stay at home and in their community rather than in a long-term care home. Not only will this aim benefit seniors who wish to stay at home or in the community, it will also benefit those who do require placement in a long-term care bed. By reducing overall demand for long-term care we will also reduce the wait time to access long-term care for those who need it the most.
