Liberals unveil their seniors strategy

Speaking at a news conference at a Holyrood personal care home, Liberal Leader Yvonne Jones said seniors deserve to spend more time in their own homes, and that government is wasting money because too many seniors are stuck in expensive hospital beds and other institutions. Jones said the plan should also shorten waiting lists for long-term care facilities. Among other things, the Liberals plan to create a minister for aging and seniors. “We see substantial savings, as well, in certain areas,” said Jones, who said the party will if elected earmark about two per cent of the government’s budget for such programs.
