Mandate staff to resident ratio in long term care facilities!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

Whereas, Ontario's population is aging and thousands of seniors across Ontario are awaiting acceptance in Long-Term Care Homes.

Whereas, long-term care front line staff are sometimes overseeing and providing care for more than fourteen residents at a time and are unable to keep up with the complex needs and demands for care of residents in a timely and safe manner

Whereas our residents are going without baths, and food and other mandatory care due to Chronic understaffing in Long-Term Care Homes across Ontario

Whereas Ontario does not have a mandatory ratio of residents to front line staff members

We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: to mandate staff to resident ratio is based on the level of care required in order to provide adequate, humane, and timely care to residents and improve their quality of life.
