    NEW SUPPORTS WILL HELP MANITOBA SENIORS LIVE AT HOME LONGER: PREMIER - - - Manitoba Government to Expand House Calls, Rehabilitation Services To Complement 200 New Personal-care Home Beds The provincial government is ensuring Manitoba seniors have the supports and services they need to stay in their own homes longer by launching two new Hospital Home Teams and offering more home based rehabilitation services, while increasing the number of personal-care home (PCH) beds across Winnipeg for those seniors who need extra care, Premier Greg Selinger announced today. "Providing the best, most convenient quality care for seniors is a priority for our government," Selinger said. "Manitoba is the great place it is today because of the seniors who had vision and built our province. It's now our turn to support them and their specific, individual needs." The province will launch two new Hospital Home Teams in Winnipeg. This innovative initiative allows seniors currently on home care with fragile, unstable health conditions to stay in their homes while receiving house calls from a co-ordinated team of health professionals including doctors, nurse practitioners and other allied health staff whose services are traditionally provided in hospitals, said the premier. A provincially funded pilot project in Winnipeg last year showed this model can cut emergency room visits and hospital admissions by more than 50 per cent, he added. "Seniors have told us that they would prefer to stay at home. The health professionals involved with the innovative test project that led to today's decision showed us another approach to help support that goal. This new approach demonstrates how hospital and community providers can work together to provide a more co-ordinated response to support people at home," said Arlene Wilgosh, president and CEO, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. The premier also noted the province will introduce more home-based rehabilitation services to help seniors regain their function after events like a stroke, injury or surgery to improve their independence and well-being. Depending on the personal need of participating seniors, they will receive house calls from physiotherapists, occupational therapists and rehabilitation aides. These services will be expanded first in Winnipeg and the Southern and Western health regions, and will include a range of services such as home stroke rehabilitation, home safety assessments, adaptation recommendations and falls prevention. "We know Manitoba families want their loved ones to be in the comfort of their own home as they try focus on getting well. This initiative will ensure they get the personal, individualized care they need in their own homes without having to make many unnecessary trips to the hospital or a clinic," said Health Minister Theresa Oswald. "When staying in one's home is not a viable option and more intense care is needed, a personal-care home bed may be required," said Selinger. "Today we are also announcing a call for proposals to provide 200 additional personal-care home beds in Winnipeg." This is part of the government's $200-million commitment to increase the number of PCH beds to meet the growing number of seniors expected in the years ahead, the premier said. This announcement builds on the 174 additional PCH beds already under development in Winnipeg's north end, Niverville, Lac du Bonnet and Morden. "Manitoba seniors deserve a warm, caring home-like environment when they are unable to be at home. Manitoba's personal-care homes provide all the comforts of home with professional, attentive staff to meet the needs of each individual," said Selinger. Organizations interested in building new personal care home beds can get more information at www.wrha.mb.ca/healthinfo/news/2012/121126-additional-pch-beds-wpg.php.

    “For many Manitobans, buying a new home is one of the most important investments they will make for their families’ future,” said Rondeau. “Our plan will help protect Manitobans buying a new home with better, extended warranty protection against construction-related defects.”
