The comments reported in the Dec. 15 article (Extendicare needs more money for staffing: administrator) regarding Extendicare Michener Hill do not accurately reflect our position.

In our home we have implemented a household model of care that differs from the traditional institutional model by providing residents the opportunity to participate in all of their daily activities in a smaller, familiar setting.

We are committed to working within our funding allocation and have not requested increased funds from Alberta Health Services.

AHS has always been supportive of Extendicare Michener Hill and we are committed to continuing to work with them to provide high quality care to our residents.
