"Through the Aging at Home Strategy, community
living options for seniors will expand dramatically, with a wider range
of home care and community support services available to enable people
to continue leading healthy and independent lives in their own homes.
More than $700 million in funding over three years will be invested
through the province's 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs).
"It is the LHINs who are leading this initiative
by identifying and providing funding for enhanced home care and
community support services, as well as for innovative projects specific
to their LHIN.
"Twenty per cent of the funding is earmarked for
innovative projects. The idea behind this strategy is to invite
proposals for new projects to support non-traditional partnerships and
new preventive and wellness services. This will provide new
opportunities for LHINs to better serve the province's culturally
diverse populations and increase equity and access for all of Ontario's
seniors." [from the website]
