Forward by Dr. Tamara Daly, “It is time that the debate shifts to acknowledge that people don’t choose to need LTC, much like someone does not choose to need a quadruple bypass. Families and residents need LTC because they can’t remain at home, and therefore they deserve a LTC system that is exceptional.
