SELBY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Thousands of ambulatory seniors across Ontario - including hundreds in Selby, Napanee, and throughout Lennox and Addington County - cannot access OHIP-funded physiotherapy, despite the fact that it's a proven and cost-effective way to keep our seniors healthy and out of the hospital.

Ontario's Designated Physiotherapy Clinics want to change that. They currently provide high-quality, low-cost, OHIP-funded physiotherapy to more than 150,000 Ontario seniors, children, social assistance recipients and disabled persons. The Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association (DPCA) has a plan for providing physiotherapy to all Ontario seniors who need it, in order that they can continue living in their own homes.

The DPCA proposes to partner with Retirement Residences, Long-Term Care (LTC) homes, and seniors' activity centres. These facilities would act as a physiotherapy treatment "hub" for ambulatory seniors.

Please join Tony Melles of the DPCA and Linda Pierce of the Village Green LTC Home to learn about how local seniors would benefit from the plan.
