More Care, Better Care: Priorities to keep Ontario from failing its seniors

11:45am-1:30pm | One King West Hotel - 1 King Street West, Toronto

Ontario’s long-term care sector is facing unprecedented challenges. Almost half of the province’s homes require renovations and the demand for care is growing each year with more than 30,000 people on wait-lists for care today. Further, the seniors being cared for are older and frailer than any other cohort in the province’s history and over the next 20 years analysts forecast a growth in the aging population, and by extension, an increase in the number of seniors requiring specialized care that cannot be provided at home.

A better system - the right system - is one where seniors and their families can have access to quality care, close to home. A system where every home has been updated and where staff are provided improved resources required to care for seniors with dementia and other complex health conditions.

On October 25, 2017, Candace Chartier, Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Long Term Care Association, will speak about these challenges and her Association’s cost-efficient plan to build the sector up so that seniors today and tomorrow have dependable access to high quality care, close to home.
