Statement on the Edmundston nursing home agreement

We are pleased that Edmundston physicians and the Province have been able to come to an agreement to ensure good care for residents of the new Domaine des Bâtisseurs nursing home. The events of recent weeks have highlighted the need for seniors care improvements, particularly strategies to keep seniors out of hospitals. We would welcome the opportunity to meet with the Province to discuss ways we can help seniors across New Brunswick.
