Qs FROM CONSTITUENTS: ON LONG TERM CARE

This blog series explores some of the questions I have been asked by Grey Highlands' constituents. This post reviews the questions asked of all candidates at the Eugenia All Candidates Meeting on Oct 1, 2022.

The following posts originated from questions from the Eugenia All Candidates Debate. The following are the question topics:


Long Term Care

(Mayoral and Deputy-Mayoral Candidates only)

The Province of Ontario has approved 62 long term beds for Grey Gables, the current county council has voted to defer approvals with no funding in place for the next ten years.


Do you think this should be a priority as a County Councillor?

Absolutely! Yes! Of course! I think most would say we need more then the 62 beds. As the mayor of Grey Highlands, I will put forward a resolution to direct Grey County Staff to include Grey Gables and the approved beds in the County's ten year plan.


I will also reach out to each and every Mayor and Deputy Mayor at the County (all while keeping within the restrictions of Procedural By Laws) to ensure they understand the issues history and the NEED.


Additionally, not only will I prioritize the long term sustainability of Grey Gables, but I also support The Grey Highlands Age-Friendly Action Plan that was supported by this Council. I would like to see the new Council develop a Strategic Plan that ensures age-friendly policies are supported.
