Behavioural Supports Ontario
The Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TC LHIN), in partnership with all Ontario Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), is investing in the enhancement of services to improve care for seniors who exhibit behaviours associated with complex and challenging mental health, dementia or other neurological conditions by investing in local initiatives.
The $40 million provincial investment, which includes $3.2 million for the TC LHIN on an annual basis, will allow local health services providers to hire new staff - nurses, personal support workers and other health care providers -- and train them in the specialized skills necessary to provide care for these patients with dignity and respect.
