Nova Scotia's deputy health minister says the province's long-term care system is unsustainable in its current form as the province's population continues to get older. Peter Vaughan says if costs continue to rise, long-term help for seniors could become even harder to access. He says there are more than 78-hundred long-term care beds in the province.
