Seniors and Windsor-Essex health care providers are calling on the provincial government to stop changes to OHIP funded physiotherapy, saying they will lead to deep cuts in care.

“I have regained strength and confidence in my mobility,” says John.

With arthritis throughout her body, Ruth Lavoie says she can walk, because of her ongoing treatment she’s afraid of what’s to come.

“I think it’s a disgrace going to take it away from us,” says Lavoie. “We really need it.”
