Long-Term Care Homes in Grey. Share Your Thoughts Tonight in Markdale from 7 to 9 pm
Centre Grey Recreation Complex March 31, 2017 75 Walker Rd., Markdale 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Grey County has some important decisions to make about the future of long-term care and other services for seniors. Standards for long-term care homes are changing and Rockwood Terrace, located in Durham, will not meet standards in 2025. This creates an opportunity to review long term care and understand how our homes could be better organized to meet the current and future demand for long term care in our area.
Making the Best Decision for Grey County
Grey County is dedicated to providing exceptional care and service to our long-term care residents. Redeveloping a home is complex and there are many factors that need to be carefully considered. No final decisions have been made and staff continue to collect information for council.
March 23 Report
The latest report was presented to Grey County Council on March 23. This meeting was recorded and can be found in two parts on the Grey County YouTube channel(link is external). No decisions were made and council will discuss long term care again at a meeting on May 11.
Share your thoughts on long term care
Grey County is holding two public presentations to give the public an opportunity to learn about the report and share their feedback. The last one will take place tonight in Markdale.
Sienna Senior Living was hired to review the County’s long-term care operations and redevelopment options. The consultant’s recommendations focused on finances only. They presented their findings to County Council on April 5, 2016. They offered three scenarios with estimated costs.
Working with the LHIN
The Southwest Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) oversees long term care in our region. One of their responsibilities is making sure residents have reasonable access to long-term care beds. We are working closely with the LHIN to understand what Grey County’s long term care needs will be over the next 30 years. Ultimately, the LHIN and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will need to approve any redevelopment decisions we make.
