"For-profit long-term care homes are more expensive, have lower staffing levels, deliver poorer quality of care, and don’t reinvest profits in facility improvements. This is a concern given that the number of for-profit homes is on the rise. Residents are entering long-term care frailer and with more complex conditions. Care needs are higher, yet homes are chronically understaffed. More staffing is needed to deliver the care that residents deserve and to prevent workplace injuries and violence."
