Government Seeks Input from Care Recipients, Caregivers

The province wants to hear from Nova Scotians who use continuing care services or care for a friend or family member.

Health and Wellness Minister Leo Glavine announced today, March 24, that government will create a client advisory council to help improve home care, long-term care and protective services.

“I want to hear from the people who rely on our services. They have valuable and unique perspectives that will help us as we continue to develop continuing care programs,” said Mr. Glavine. “I look forward to hearing a broad range of experiences, perspectives and knowledge.”

Eight people will be selected to make up the council. Four will be current or former clients and four will be caregivers. Each person will serve a two-year term.

Mr. Glavine said about 36,000 Nova Scotians access continuing care services in homes, nursing homes or residential care facilities each year.

Applications are available by contacting the department by phone at 902-424-5129 or by visiting http://novascotia.ca/dhw/ccs/client-advisory-council.asp .

The application deadline is April 17.
