Manitoulin Lodge seeks support from residents on letter-writing campaign

GORE BAY—The Manitoulin Lodge Nursing Home in Gore Bay is hoping that support will be provided by area residents to help its letter-writing campaign to the government.

“We will be participating in the annual campaign by the Ontario Long-Term Care Association (OLTCA) in collecting signatures petitioning the government and the letter-writing campaign to advocate for additional resources,” Gloria Hall, activities co-ordinator at the Manitoulin Lodge told The Recorder last week. “With the Better Seniors Care campaign, we hope to receive a lot of local support from people signing the petition and taking part in the letter-writing campaign, and we will be sending these letters and petition to our MPP (Michael Mantha) to forward to the government, advocating to make our seniors a priority in the next provincial budget.”
