Candace Chartier, CEO of OLTCA to address the EC

11:45am-1:30pm | King Edward Hotel - 37 King Street East, Toronto

A plan for long-term care, for seniors and for Ontario.

Long-term care in Ontario remains caught between the system we have and the system we could have. Over the past decade our province’s seniors have become more clinically complex with the incidence of cognitive impairment and dementias more prevalent than ever before. However, our long-term care homes have found that they are ill-equipped to meet today’s demands as a result of outdated homes, over-regulation and funding that hasn’t kept pace with the care needs of our aging population.

On October 25, 2018, Candace Chartier, CEO of the Ontario Long Term Care Association, will speak to the mounting pressure long-term care has faced over the last 10 years and put forward responsible solutions to help address the challenges facing our seniors and the health system. By implementing these recommendations, seniors in Ontario will receive the care they deserve and the health system will benefit from the savings generated when we’re caring for seniors and for Ontario in the most appropriate setting.
