Right at Home Steps Up And Makes Things Right For Dying Woman

Recently you may have read in the Toronto Star about Doris Landry.   The 84-year-old woman has out-lived her one-or-two month life expectancy and has now been stripped of the full-time in-home care that the Central CCAC and Central LHIN’s “Home First” program was providing for her. Her Niece, who has been caring for her in her home, now has to decide between working, and staying at home caring for her dying Aunt.

Right at Home in the Toronto Star

Last month, the Star told the story of Doris Landry, an 84-year-old woman who outlived the 90-day funding limit for the Central CCAC’s “Home First” program. In October, Landry’s care was cut from eight hours a day to three hours a day. Landry wanted to stay in her niece’s home in Lisle, Ont., outside of Alliston, but was unable to pay for personal support workers, and her niece Charlene Dunlevy was faced the prospect of turning down work to care for her aunt during the day.

But there’s a human resources hurdle they have to overcome first.
