Labour is unmatched in protecting the Federation’s elderly. In recognition of the need to protect the elderly we endeavor to enact legislation outlawing physical, emotional and financial abuse. Labour has pioneered the Federation’s in-home care for elderly persons who are unable to care for themselves and will further enhance it by requiring that all institutional and in-home elder care providers be registered and regulated. It will be stipulated that all institutional or in-home elder care providers be certified in Gerontology, which is the scientific study of the process of aging, and issues affecting the elderly. Our elderly are often overlooked, but Labour value our elderly. We will establish daycare centers for persons susceptible to depression due to social isolation. It is also our intent to explore partnership arrangements to improve the management of the Cardin Home.
