“The Emerging and Evolving Vision of Long-Term Care Homes in the Transformation of Community Based Care of the Elderly”



Today, community based long-term care of the elderly is the confluence of many streams of historical approaches of care for highly complex seniors. In various formats the resources dedicated to this need is considerable. The care itself is perhaps best characterized by “silos” then as a truly integrated and seamless system of care. Not only do we have the visible elements of these “silos”: long-term care homes, primary care, home care, assisted living, seniors mental health, community specialist care, adult day programs, other community services and retirement homes, but also we have the invisible elements that occur when acute care, rehabilitation and complex continuing care institution services are used because the community system fails to perform in an integrated way. This is evidenced by unnecessary admissions and re-admissions, use of the facility for care that could best be provided elsewhere - alternate level of care - and use of these facilities for palliative care which could be provided elsewhere. The visible and invisible cost of community based care of the elderly, easily top $15-20B annually in Ontario. Long-term care homes alone, as they are currently constituted, have a total government and personal funded of $4.5-5.0B /year.

Building on a key thought document prepared in 2012, “Why Not Now”, an exciting vision is emerging how long-term care homes can play a greater role in the integrated seamless, complex care of elderly in the community. This presentation will explore key aspects of the vision.
