Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS both the Independent Review and staff benchmarking has found that City residents receive an average of 18 minutes less nursing and personal care for each resident per day than the 2016 Ontario non-profit average; and WHEREAS the Independent Review has recommended that 35 additional Personal Support Workers are required to provide optimal care and reduce the risk for abuse and neglect, with an estimated operating budget impact of $2.3 M; and WHEREAS staff has reported that there was a consistent message across the board that more Personal Support Workers, and more training and direct involvement of Personal Support Workers in care is a high priority; and WHEREAS the 2019 Budget is not expected to be adopted until March 2019, and this is too long for residents in our homes to wait for more care; and WHEREAS staff has advised that they can accelerate the hiring of the 35 Personal Support Workers this year, with a 2018 part-year impact of an estimated $800k; and WHEREAS the City Treasurer has advised that there are sufficient funds in the One-time and Unforeseen Account to permit the accelerated hiring of these workers in 2018; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Community and Protective Services Committee recommend that City Council approve that 35 new, additional FTEs in Long-Term Care Services for Personal Support Workers, or other new positions as the GM determines are necessary, and that $800,000 be provided from the One-Time and Unforeseen Account to permit the hiring to take place in 2018.
