Woefully inadequate support

I have worked as a family physician for many years. I have seen many of my patients with chronic diseases being denied or given woefully inadequate support by their local Community Care Access Centre.  This situation has arisen because of inadequate funding for those with chronic diseases.  So instead of being able to be cared for in their homes 24/7, these people are sent to nursing homes or assisted living situations that often separate patients from their families. It also means they cannot receive the care they need and deserve due to inadequate funding to these programs. It is very sad that those who have contributed so much to their family and society end their days so poorly cared for
