Alberta's Long-Term Care Services Are in Crisis: Government's relentless pursuit to privatize long-term care

Baldwin P. Reichwein

Abstract

Public Interest Alberta's Seniors Task Force members are deeply concerned about the privatization of long-term care in Alberta that began during the Klein era. The move away from publicly funded and publicly administered long-term care is accelerating under the leadership of Premier Ed Stelmach. In making this shift, government will harvest short-term gain that can only result in long-term pain for people in need of such services.
