In front of the bait a paid training and better wage conditions, several clerks to the beneficiaries of the private homes or in home care have already made the leap or are considering to do so. The danger is real to undress the other sectors in the clothing of the CHSLD.
The Regroupement québécois des résidences pour aînés (RQRA), which the 1700 residence that are home to 130 000 seniors, is afraid of a break in service in the short term and “a major wave of closures” in a horizon not so far away.
“On the ground, we are already witnessing the adverse effects of this major recruitment effort. Many owners of residences for seniors we have reported resignations or protests of employees will be very interested to accept the call of the prime minister “, said in press release the chairman and managing director of the RQRA, Yves Desjardins.
“We have always collaborated with our partners in the private, and we will continue, ensures for its part, the minister McCann. We will do whatever it takes to achieve this balance. We need people in the private sector. […] It is necessary to ensure that everyone has the services.”
Once in the room, she also promised a “big bend to the home support, because that is what we want, in Quebec, is that people remain at home and that is what the population also wants to”.
In the opposition, as Québec solidaire, the Parti québécois denounce the displacement of the problem. The move has already begun with the award of pay incentives in NURSING homes since the beginning of the pandemic.
The PQ is proposing that the government, by decree, increase the salary of all the employees, whether they are in home care, private residences or NURSING homes. Its motion in this direction has, however, been rejected.
