What exists today--what programs and services do our federal and provincial governments provide for
our care and for a loved one’s care when needed?
Should we rely on these services being available for our loved ones, for ourselves, when we might
need some assistance—in other words, are these services guaranteed like our doctor services under
the Canada Health Act?
How can we find out about these programs’ assessment processes, the residences available, and
How does the Canada Health Act treat 'care services'?
When we need care, should we count on government services being there for us and our families?
Many Canadians seem to feel that their care-years needs will be met by government services-this feeling of 'entitlement' is harmful to a family's planning as it is based on a misunderstanding by Canadians that our Canada Health Act 'guarantees our care-services'.
What is the situation, should we depend on government services being there in our care-years?
