Government acts to relieve pressure on hospitals

Caring for Alberta's seniors

464 continuing care beds will open over the next 12 months. This will free up acute care beds in hospitals and emergency departments currently being used by patients waiting for continuing care space.

Further actions include a review of home care capacity and alternative health-care delivery models, and $60 million in targeted Affordable Supportive Living Initiative (ASLI) funds.
