Continuing Care

Public surveys

Thank you to everyone who provided their input to help shape policy and legislation. Three regulations, the Nursing Homes Operation Regulation, the Nursing Homes General Regulation, and the Co-ordinated Home Care Program Regulation, expire in 2017.

Two online surveys in July 2016 asked for input on staffing in nursing homes, supports for caregivers and what types of social and recreational activities should be available in nursing homes, among other topics. The surveys were conducted by R. A. Malatest & Associates on behalf of Alberta Health

Feedback from 10 stakeholder sessions held in 8 communities between May 30 and June 16, 2016, will be included in the review process. Invitees at these sessions included continuing care clients/residents and their family members, supportive living and long-term care facility operators, advocacy groups, care providers, and others.
