ACCA Letter to the Editor in Response to Misleading Remarks From AUPE

The ACCA has issued this Letter to the Editor in response to a misleading letter that appeared in the August 27 edition in which AUPE attempts to shift the discussion away from the real issues facing our continuing care industry to the same old red herrings, namely that private care providers are pocketing huge profits and lack transparency. All care providers are held to the same standards and continue to look for operational efficiencies and creativity in delivering quality person-centred care in an industry that continues to be underfunded.


Congratulations Park Place Seniors Living - Groundbreaking at Villa Marguerite!
