Extendicare says delays in getting test results contributed to COVID-19 outbreak at Starwood
Laura Tamblyn Watts, the CEO of CanAge, says the provincial government needs to do more to protect the residents and staff of Ontario's long-term care homes. Tamblyn Watts points to promises made by the Ontario government to protect long-term care homes that aren't backed up by budget dollars. "When the budget came out quite recently, we were all looking to see where those infrastructure and staffing investments were going to be coming form. They government has been talking about four hours of care and then no money was actually allocated to it in the budget," she said.
