Capital Health Seeks Input on Health Services

first_imgResidents in the Capital Health district are being asked for their input on how the province delivers continuing-care services to infants, children, youth, adults and seniors. “It’s important we hear from all Nova Scotians on this important health-care issue,” said Health Minister Angus MacIsaac. “The input we receive will help us build a better system.” Continuing-care services include home care, nursing homes, end-of-life care, adult day centres, adult protection, and other services that support people of all ages living in the community. More than 50 public meetings will have taken place throughout the province by the end of July. Public input and additional research will be used to develop short- and long-term plans for continuing-care services. The public meeting in Capital Health will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 21 in the Thomas Raddall Room of the Keshen Goodman Library, 330 Lacewood Dr., Halifax.
