There are more than 600 long term care homes in Ontario, housing over 80,000 residents. Long term care homes are also known as nursing homes. There are 19 nursing homes in Windsor and Essex County. Nursing homes are private enterprises focused on making money. Quality of care provided by the homes can vary and is sometimes quite poor.
There are cases of negligence where the home falls below the standard of care expected. Residents in nursing homes are a vulnerable population with pre-existing health conditions, generally reduced life expectancy, physical frailty and often reduced mental status.
