HEU’s Care Can’t Wait: Demanding Better Funding
for Seniors’ Care

From Jennifer Whiteside, Secretary-Business Manager of the Hospital Employees Union:

91% of residential care homes do not meet the government’s own staffing guideline.

BC’s Seniors Advocate released a report this week showing over 90 per cent of the province’s senior care homes are understaffed. That’s up 10 per cent from last year!

Our news release is getting traction in the media, but I'm asking for your help.

Will you spread the word about the staffing crisis and what government must do to solve it?

Let’s make this issue too big to ignore.

Together we can push government to make seniors’ care a priority in this province.


In solidarity,

Jennifer Whiteside
Secretary-Business Manager

P.S. If you are not on Facebook, here’s a link to my op-ed in the Vancouver Sun.
