    Ms. Baldwin will launch an awareness campaign aimed at educating people
about the importance of this growing sector and recognizing the difference
continuing care programs, organizations, employees and volunteers make in the
lives of Nova Scotians.
    Ben Robertson and Andrea Leonard will profile examples of advances being
made in the continuing care sector. Ms. Leonard will announce the launch of a
new provincial initiative.
    The Residents' Chime Choir will play a few pieces for the residents and
staff who have joined together to celebrate the continuing care sector.

    The term, continuing care is used to describe a range of health-related
services and programs that are offered outside of the hospital setting, either
on a long-term or short-term basis. The ultimate goal is to help people live
their lives to the fullest in the place they call home. Continuing care
employees work in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, homes for
the aged, home care organizations (including home support and visiting
nursing), residential care facilities, adult residential centres, regional
rehabilitation centres, and community-based options such as group homes and
small option homes across the province.
