Veterans Affairs Canada Long Term Care Community Facilities Audit - February 2012
The Long Term Care Program works in cooperation with provinces/territories, health authorities and long term care facilities to financially support eligible Veterans in an appropriate long term care setting. Veterans Affairs Canada provides funding for qualified Veterans who occupy a contract bed or those in a community bed. As of March 31, 2011, there were 9,376 recipients of funding support from Veterans Affairs Canada in non-departmental institutions across Canada. 2,782 recipients were in contract beds and 6,594 were in community beds. These numbers are forecasted to decline between 2012 and 2020 when there will be a decline in demand for Long Term Care. Forecasts estimate that there will be 5,780 Veterans in long term care in five years (2016-2017).
The purpose of this audit was to provide assurance that the management control framework governing the Long Term Care Program is effective and the internal controls surrounding the program are adequate and functioning well. The scope included Long Term Care recipients in community beds and contract beds governed by a Memorandum of Understanding with provincial health authorities, from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011.
