The argument for home care was that it was giving the people what they want. So why are patients now being asked to leave their homes to access care after being discharged from hospitals?
Patients don't want sympathy, we want solidarity. We don't want "reasonable" solutions that disregard the destruction of social services over decades.
The job of Ontario's first Patient Ombudsman will be to hear patient complaints and make recommendations to facilities and the ministry to improve care. Is that enough to help a strained system?
