THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that BPW Ontario urges the Government of Ontario to amend Ontario Regulation 386/99 to enable Community Care Access Centres to provide homemaking to people who are:
· Unable to perform their own homemaking but do not require personal care services;
· Do not have an adequate support network from which they can obtain homemaking support; and
· Are unable to afford to purchase homemaking services.
FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that BPW Ontario urges the Government of Ontario to increase funding to Community Care Access Centres to support the costs associated with the proposed amendment to Ontario Regulation 386/99, but not through reallocation from the long-term care institution sector.
