Every year, nearly all Canadian families are directly impacted, to some degree, by mental illness, such as Alzheimer’s.
It is the provincial government’s responsibility to implement specialized long-term care services in French. These services have to be equitable and accessible, and have to meet the specific needs of the francophone population.
It is also the government’s responsibility to offer long-term community services such as a specialized Day Program for those suffering from an Alzheimer’s like dementia.
Whatever their needs…

Seniors should have equitable access to specialized services and care in their language
Research shows that only one third of Canadians living with a mental health problem or mental illnesses actually get access to adequate services1.
A full range of highly specialized, intensive and front-line services are neither accessible nor equitable.
People will not receive care if there are no services available, or if those that exist are inappropriate. Lengthy wait lists for just about every type of service bear witness to the acute shortages of appropriate services and the serious lack of long-term care and mental health service providers that underpin them.
Statistics Canada 2006 Census of Population counted 58,590 persons in the Greater Toronto Area whose mother tongue is French on a possibility of 5,072,075 persons, i.e. 1.16%.2 Since this total doesn’t take into consideration the thousands of immigrants or others whose second language is French, we can easily assumed that the number of Francophones could double.
In the Greater Toronto Area, the distribution of beds available varies based on the locality.3

The provincial government has to take its responsibilities and to take into account the growing needs of the aging francophone population in the GTA. As part of the 2008 budget, the government committed itself to increase its total investment for LTC homes to $3.1 billion in 2008-09, an increase of 10.6 per cent over the 2007 budget.


The government also committed itself to redeveloping 35,000 older LTC beds over the next 10 years to ensure equitable access to quality LTC homes, making language an admission criterion.


We want the appropriate funding required to open 50 basic and specialized long-term care beds for chronic diseases, HIV/Aids, palliative care, dementia, etc.
We want the implementation of a long-term care Unit in the Greater Toronto area for Francophones who demonstrate a high level of risk to self and/or others and who have needs for care that exceed what is currently available in the community. The Unit would provide individualized care.
We want not only the accessibility for Francophone Seniors to specialized long-term care in their community or as close as possible to their homes but that they may also die with dignity in French.
Solution
Granting to CAH…

… a part of the billions allocated to the long-term care


Allowing CAH…

… to increase its range of services offered to the Elderly


Trusting CAH…

… to successfully meet the long-term care challenge by building on its success of the last 30 years!
