Funding for Mississauga long-term care homes should help seniors avoid stays in the hospital.

The province announced $871,565 for seven projects in Mississauga to help seniors with complex medical needs like dementia and bariatric care connect to specialized care and supports in their long-term care home instead of a hospital, John Jordan, parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Long-Term Care announced today (March 31).

“We’re expanding specialized services and supports for long-term care residents in Mississauga, so that people with complex needs get the care they need and deserve in the comfort of a home, instead of a hospital,” said Jordan.

Some of the local projects will bring specialized care to seniors in their long-term care homes.

Other projects will support the admission of people into long-term care homes who no longer require acute care in hospital, but who have complex needs that are difficult to accommodate without specialized services and supports.
