Ontario Planning to Invest $1 Billion More to Expand Home Care

As part of the Ontario government’s plan to stay open, and to help seniors and recovering patients stay in the homes they love, the government is investing $1 billion more over the next three years to further expand home care. This funding will benefit the nearly 700,000 families who rely on home care annually, preventing unnecessary hospital and long-term care admissions and shortening hospital stays. Expanding home care will provide Ontarians with the choice to stay in their home and help with hospital capacity to keep the province open.

This funding will support expanded home care services, while recruiting and training more home care workers. Expanding home care will bolster Ontario’s Plan to Stay Open by allowing patients to receive the care they need in the comfort of their own home, preserving hospital beds for those who need them most.
