CUPE Health Care Council launches radio campaign on seniors’ care

The issue of seniors’ care continues to be at the top of mind for many Saskatchewan citizens. In response to this concern, the CUPE Health Care Council has launched a radio ad calling for a minimum standard of care.

“Our members are doing the best they can with limited time,” said Gordon Campbell, CUPE Health Care Council president. “But with the current staffing levels, our members barely have time to take care of residents’ basic needs and have no time to support their emotional and social needs.”

Many CUPE members working in long term care facilities report that staff is not replaced when on sick leave or other short term leave.

“This adds to workload and impacts their ability to deliver quality care. The government should abandon its directive to health regions to save money by not replacing staff. This policy is making the situation worse,” added Campbell.

CUPE is recommending the government implement a minimum care standard to ensure adequate staffing levels to meet the needs of residents.

CUPE is the largest health care union in Saskatchewan, representing over 13,600 members. Many of CUPE’s members work in long term care facilities and in home care.
