Most of us will need some form of help at the end of our lives, and many of us will need long-term care to stay out of the hospital.

Two changes must be made immediately: frequent surprise inspections with consequences, plus minimum staffing standards.

With the provincial elections approaching, it’s time for candidates to let us know where they stand on improving long-term care.
